Another reason to allow sick citizens to use cannabis (marijuana) for 
pain that doesn't get mentioned ("Medical marijuana bill goes to the 
House for consideration," March 7) 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 (Genesis 
1:11-12 and 29-30).

The only biblical restriction placed on cannabis is to accept it with 
thankfulness (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 cannabis is the tree of life, and the last 
page of the Bible indicates the leaves of the tree of life are for 
the healing of the nations. Jesus risked jail to heal the sick.
