Re: "No Justification For Pot" by Ben Hooker

Regardless of their safety, God put all plants on Earth for all 
humans everywhere to use -- forever. Man's law states that it is okay 
for some people to put other people in cages for using certain 
plants. It is absurd! The Bible says nothing anywhere about some 
people being allowed to imprison others for using a plant or 
ingesting its leaves or berries. Since when do the laws of man 
supersede the law of the Creator?

By Hooker's logic, we should imprison God Himself for "inventing 
marijuana with intent to distribute." Of course, in a state like 
Texas, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if you did.
