Evil drug prohibition laws caused another needless, shame filled, and painful death; foreshadowing what awaits the Prohibitionists and their supporters.*

A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.
His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.

Well, here I am again, staring at this blank screen, trying to figure out what to say so you will share the information I have gathered. “Once the medical facts about cannabis become known, the need for legalization becomes obvious!” How many times have I said that? I need YOU to educate those around you. I can’t do it alone!
At times, it seems so futile — this never-ending battle against ignorance about cannabis. But I can’t give up - this simple herb has some amazing uses and people need to know what it can do.
Cannabis should be treated like any other medicinal herb, because that’s what it is, […]
As Americans, we should be free to exercise our right to choose the type of medicines that we take. Anyone exhibiting the first signs of Alzheimer’s should be able to choose between Aricept, Marinol, or natural cannabis to slow the deposit of mind-clogging amyloid plaque.
“When tested at double the concentration of THC, Aricept blocked plaque formation only 22% as well as THC, and Cognex blocked plaque formation only 7% as well as THC.” (Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer’s - WebMD, 2006 see more)
Marinol is just a capsule of a pure synthetic THC dissolved in sesame oil. It will work, but some people find that it causes anxiety because it lacks CBD (cannabidiol) to balance the THC high.
Natural cannabis has CBD and other cannabinoids in it, which act in a different way to slow the progress of Alzheimer’s. (“Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids reduce microglial activation in vitro and in vivo: relevance to Alzheimer’s disease” - Molecular Pharmacology, 2011 search) I know which I would logically choose, but in 2/3s of the US, and everywhere by federal law, that choice is forbidden to us. Our government has banned our best choice!

I know evangelical Pat Robertson is a proponent of the legalization of marijuana and against the War on Drugs.
Does the Christians Against Prohibition Addicted to Love, support the legalization of marijuana? Remember Genesis 1:29, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” This in itself promoted marijuana.
Yes or No???
Yes, this is from Genesis.
