Another reason to re-legalize the plant cannabis for sick citizens
that doesn't get mentioned ("Marijuana questions on some local
ballots," Oct. 24) is because it is Biblically correct, since God
indicates He created all the seed-bearing plants saying they are all
good, on literally the very first page (see Genesis 1:11-12 and
29-30). The only Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it be
accepted with thankfulness (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5).

And, "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?" (1 John 3:17).

Further, many people know of cannabis as the tree of life and the very
last page of the Bible indicates the leaves of the tree of life are
for the healing of the nations.
