The legalization of marijuana has grown tremendously over the last few years with more states legalizing the use of marijuana. Some people don’t even consider marijuana to be a drug but instead a medicine that can cure several ailments. True indeed the plant itself in its natural state, and we stress the word natural here, is an herb like many other herbs that God created for the use of man.
When God made the herbs for us, it was (and still is) meant to be eaten or in some cases, it can be boiled and be drunk as tea. It is by no means ever meant to be taken through our lungs, by the method of smoking.
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
A substitution for the word meat in this context is food. So that begs to ask the question, do you wrap up food in a piece of paper and smoke it through your lungs. No one in their right mind does! And God did not intend for us to do that either.
Genesis 1:30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. The herbs were made for the animals to eat also. Have you ever seen a cow roll up some grass into a pile and smoke it through their lungs or do you see them eating it, like how it was meant to be? How about a deer out in the wild, picking off some leaves, leaving them out in the sun to dry, then a few days later coming back and rolling it up into a joint to smoke? You don’t see that (except for maybe in the cartoons).
So what is man’s problem then? Why do people want to take an herb that God created and intended to be used as meat, let it dry out, and then smoke it?
Ecclesiastes 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. The problem is; man has a mind to think and rationalize things which gets us into a whole lot of hurt.
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Corinthians 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
We are defiling our bodies when we smoke marijuana or use any other drugs.
If you smoke marijuana you should stop doing it and start to deal with the examples that Jesus Christ left us on how to live our lives. You should no longer be ignorant of the fact that the marijuana plant like any other herb was not meant to be taken through our lungs.
Acts 17:30 – 31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
