I support cannabis (kaneh-bosm/marijuana) legalization ("Supporters 
of legalizing marijuana rally in Madison," Oct. 9, 2006). This is a 
chance for citizens who use or don't use cannabis to help change an 
ignorant anti-Christian law.

It is a chance for parents and mothers to help protect children from 
the laws of prohibition and their harms. It is a chance to guide 
police toward serving and protecting, rather than maintaining a 
misguided prohibition.

It's a chance for true fiscal conservatives to stop government from 
unsuccessfully spending more money to control what people put in 
their bodies. It is a chance for DARE graduates who've been lied to 
to speak out.

It's a chance for Christians to acknowledge what it means when Christ 
God Our Father indicates he created all the seed-bearing plants, 
saying they are all good on literally the very first page of the 
Bible - see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30.

It's a time to stop caging and persecuting people for using what God 
says is good.
