Let me start by saying, although I am not a current smoker, I am a 100% promoter of the legalization of marijuanna but please let’s not turn this into a legal debate but a Christian discussion.
I’m looking specifically for those who have smoked marijuana more than a couple times and those who are Christian, if there are any out there. Any advice on the topic or ideas are welcome though 🙂
OK let’s suppose it’s 2023 and marijuanna is legal in all the states and federally. No laws ruling it out.
There is a very religious couple that smokes marijuanna to help calm them. And if you’ve been a smoker in the past, you know after the initial times of smoking it doesn’t really do anything to you but calm you down. It’s also an anticonvulsant which helps with seizures and many other medical uses.
OK I’m not trying to debate on the good and bad of it and I’ve seen many bees on here who are against marijuana. I’ll be honest here, I’ve smoked on and off for the past 11 years. Up until May I smoked every day all day for about 3 years. I seemed like a better person when I was smoking. I didn’t change, I just didn’t stress out about everything. I did care about bills and everything (despite the hype that stoners are lazy and care about nothing) when I was smoking I was always going outside going to the park, going on walks, throwing footballs around, I was more talkative with everyone (we lived in another state and I had the luxury of living in a legal state) I stopped smoking all together in June. Part of me wants to start again, somehow it gave me motivation to do things. Something I’ve been lacking the last 6 months or so. Lacking since I stopped smoking.
Part of me wants to stay without because I don’t know how God feels about it. I stopped getting drunk because it is mind altering, but I don’t know if it’s against God to smoke marijuanna or not. If you’ve ever smoked (more than once or twice) you know the initial “high” wears off and you just relax easier. I have a hard time with this. I’ve been trying it on my own the last 9 months but it isn’t working so well, I’m getting no where.
Part of me doesn’t feel like it’s wrong, the other part of me isn’t sure. So I’mhere to get opinions on this. I plan to pray about it but I’m at the part in my faith where it’s new and I don’t know what answer I get on the topic. I’m also very strict with my faith to where I’m terrified to mess up so everything worries me it will be wrong in Gods eyes. I fear birth control is wrong, I fear everything is evil and question if it’s the devil or just me being overly cautious and self questioning everything.
Without getting law mixed with religion (since we are supposing it’s in a legal state, which we are hoping to move to and that federally and state it is legal everywhere)
So what are your thoughts concerning marijuanna and religion?
