I agree with credible drug law reform, including limiting the federal
government's ability to cage sick citizens for using cannabis
(editorial, "Sending the wrong message," Nov. 30), and wanted to add
that it is biblically correct to stop caging humans for using the
plant. Our unwavering God created all the seed-bearing plants and said
they were all good on literally the very first page of the Bible.

I would also like to see clergy speak up for Christ God Our Father on
this issue since Jesus Christ risked going to jail to heal the sick.

In 1 John 3:17 the Bible says: "But whoever has the world's goods, and
sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does
the love of God abide in him?" The Bible describes who will even
propose such prohibition as those who, "fall away from the faith," in
1 Timothy 4:1-5.
