It is disappointing, Focus on the Family President Jim Daly 
(Religious leader cites medical pot benefits, Jan. 18) is publicly 
speaking about cannabis (marijuana) as though the table of the Lord 
is defiled and the table of the Lord is to be despised. Cannabis 
prohibition is a tool used by the devil to separate people from 
utilizing the communication system, which Christ Jesus taught about, 
known as the "spirit of truth." It's available to those who love one 
another, and we cannot love someone and cage or punish them for using 
what God says is good on the very first page of the Bible.

Cannabis prohibition was predicted ahead of time in 1 Timothy 4:1-5, 
where it also describes who will be doing the dirty deed as those who 
"will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits 
and doctrines of demons." In that same passage is the only Biblical 
restriction to using cannabis: to use it with thankfulness. People 
and groups who wish to follow the teachings of Christ Jesus should 
not support or enable the devil's law or influence others to do so. 
Further, it's luciferous to associate legalizing the God-given plant 
cannabis with prostitution.
