ARGGHH Oh I am so sick of this. You must be the 200th Internet pot smoker this WEEK to tell me this! It's why I have to keep speaking up against pot year after year! I have said over and over that just because God gave us "herbs" doesn't mean He wants us to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! CAN'T YOU SEE THAT?? And if you are so dang religious, talking about God, you of ALL people should know not to smoke pot recreationally. A religion is supposed to teach people to AVOID using mind-altering drugs, not encourage them to get high on POT! Otherwise, what is a religion FOR? Heck, I wasn't even religious in high school or college and I sure never smoked POT. Nobody ever even offered it to me! And I was a teen in the 70s! Same for my husband! And then I joined the Mormon church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where we have revelation from God saying that it's wrong to use mind-altering drugs like pot and alcohol to have "fun". Using drugs to have "fun" is not what TRUE fun is! That's what makes it immoral, and just plain immature! You shouldn't have to be Mormon to know this! It’s just common sense! So STOP BLAMING MY RELIGION ON THIS. I only share my religion with you guys thinking you will be touched and want to learn more, but you always use it AGAINST me, blaming my religion on my stance on drugs as if I'm a "brainwashed Mormon" or you bring up about the "herbs". ARGH!
