Won't it be nice when the cartels take over the pot industry in the US , as if they haven't already.

Lol. Bet they won’t ask me to take the survey. Most Arkansans are ignorant and care nothing about what GOD would prefer they do and think about marijuana and the legalization of all harmful drugs. As for me and my house we will serve THE LORD. “Who satisfieth thy mouth with good [things; so that] thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.” Psalm 103:5. Marijuana, many other herbs and especially plants like tobacco, cocoa, and poppies, are not good things. They are part of the devil’s plan to harm people, enslave them and to thwart the purpose of GOD. The Apostle Paul wrote to those in Corinth who were dealing with similar issues “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.” 1 Corinthians 10:23. I realize most who see this comment will look at me as some Bible thumping Jesus freak who is out of touch with reality, but those who have ears to hear will hear what The Spirit of GOD is saying to the Church. This is a secular matter mostly, and the world is going to do what the world will do. That’s the reason I doubt that those giving this survey will ever ask me to participate. I want nothing to do with this world. GOD is my King. I’ll just pray for all who support this evil of legalizing marijuana and all such bad things. Blessings to you all.

My suggestion to you brothom is to do your own research. The DEVIL is not in Cannabis nor do the people who use it serve him. Its people like you that spew bull crap and dont even have a clue what your spewing about.
Let me give you an idea of what harms people.. IGNORANCE that harms people. I almost died on Prescription meds that doctors gave me. Ya, legal things. I chose to use Cannabis and now I am prescription free and able to get out and enjoy life.

Some are said to be able to live on air and sunshine alone. Maybe you are one of those.

Or, on the other hand, you may be one who derives his sustenance from the judgement of others.

I thought the Bible taught that God gave man dominion over all life on Earth, both plant and animal.

So you have a problem with Genesis 1:29 in which Jehovah states, "I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the the whole Earth and every fruit that has seed in it. They will be yours for food." (NIV)

There are many first hand accounts of people being cured of cancer worldwide by treatment with cannabis.

Who are you to say that it is not a gift from the Almighty?

Really, didn't God make cannabis? Would be able to save considerable money and lives if drugs where legalized and regulated. Of course law enforcement and prisons would have to cut ranks. Cartels and gang bangers would lose incentive when profit margins go down and they actually have to operate as respectable business. Wake up and be true Americans who believe in life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Peace and love, WWJD brothel.

What would be nice is if this paper could learn to use the correct terminology, "cannabis," rather than slang words like "pot" or "marijuana." It's kind of like referring to a newspaper as a "rag." Slang words often portray a bias.

Amen on that, markbeggs.
