It seems caregiver and businessman Jason Christ follows Jesus' word
better than most of our Christian lawmakers in the state of Montana.
He advocates and uses marijuana as meat. I'd like to remind all
conservatives and conservatives claiming to be followers of Jesus
Christ about what it says in their own Bible.

Genesis 1:29: "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb
bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree,
in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be
for meat."

"The federal government says it's illegal, it's a drug!" say the many
Bible-thumping Democrats and Republicans. The question is, are
advocates of marijuana's prohibition taking truth as authority, or
authority as truth? I encourage these Bible thumpers to quit making so
much noise and filling their balloons with hot air. Maybe they can
follow through with actually reading the Good Book before pointing the
finger at a plant. It's time to hold our public servants accountable
again for hypocrisy.

Humorously speaking, it seems we have a modern Christ providing an
example for the Pharisees collecting taxes in the state of Montana.
Woe to you hypocrites that have troubled your house; the society you
claim to represent is inheriting the wind with you. A "hell yeah" to
all the caregivers that are taking business as usual as if it's still
a free market in the economy that the "free market" politicians keep
trying to regulate to death whenever they perceive a crisis.
