QUESTION: I admit I probably smoke pot a bit more than I should (it's legal in our state), but now my wife is getting after me because she says I'm addicted to it and turning into the equivalent of an alcoholic. Can harmless drugs like pot really do that to you? - Z.K.

ANSWER: No drug is harmless, and experts I have consulted agree that almost any drug can become addictive - including marijuana. When that happens, a person becomes more and more dependent on it, and may find it almost impossible to break away from it on their own. Gradually it ruins their life and destroys their relationships.

In the late sixties, I remember Pierre Trudeau walking along the West Coast Trail on the west side of Vancouver Island and he was approached by a group of hippies.

They were badgering him about the possibility of legalizing marijuana.

And Mr. Trudeau gave a very good reply, probably the smartest thing he ever said.

He questioned them by asking them why he should do that.

He referred to the fact that one can get a natural high by relishing the pristine beauty of the West Coast Trail. Enough said. Fast forward to 2016 and we have Pierre's son, Justin, advocating the legalization of marijuana.

Dear Editor:

Another reason to allow sick citizens to use cannabis (marijuana / kaneh bosm) that doesn't get mentioned (letter: Mumbo Jumbo Blocking Medical Marijuana in Iowa, Feb. 29, 2016 Pilot-Tribune) 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.

Many people know of cannabis as the tree of life and the very last page says the leaves of the tree of life are for the healing of the nations. 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?

A sane or moral argument to cage sick citizens for using cannabis doesn't exist.

Members of Colo. Group Say Pot Strengthens Faith

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - As snow began to fall outside, Deb Button snuggled up on her couch, fired up a joint and spoke of the nature of Christ.

"Even if Jesus didn't smoke weed, he'd still be a stoner," she said, exhaling a white cloud.

Her kitten sniffed the air curiously.

"Jesus was peaceful and loving. He went from house to house and was always accepted," she explained. "Only a stoner could do that."

With the countless problems California citizens face, struggling to use the God-given plant cannabis (marijuana) for medical reasons (Letters. "SLO County Cities Should Not Ban Patients," Dec. 29), it should be obvious that it's time to completely end cannabis prohibition. Ending cannabis prohibition in Colorado eliminated perhaps 90 percent of the controversy California citizens face. Now sick people in Colorado no longer are required to get a doctor's permission to use the plant or the state's permit to use or grow the plant. That is to say, sick citizens no longer pay the state extortion money for protection from the police in order to grow and use what God indicates He created and says is good on literally the first page of the Bible.

Legalizing cannabis would also force Pismo Beach police Chief Jake Miller to return to protecting citizens instead of gardening.

Wineries and breweries should brace themselves for some unusual competition. Colorado, which legalized marijuana for recreational use in 2012, will get its first "weedery" in early 2016.

The $35 million project, Green Man Cannabis Ranch and Amphitheater, the brainchild of Christian Hageseth, is set to open in Denver. Its greenhouses represent a major shift because producers have largely cultivated marijuana indoors; there will also be a performance space, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, a gift shop and, of course, a marijuana dispensary.

Another important reason to end cannabis (marijuana) prohibition that doesn't get mentioned ("Legalize Marijuana," Tuesday, April 7 News) is because it is biblically correct since God (The Ecologician) created all the seed bearing plants saying they're all good on literally the very first page.

The only biblical restriction to using cannabis is to use it with thankfulness (see 1 Tim. 4:1-5).

A sane or moral argument to continue cannabis prohibition doesn't exist.

Passing the Dutchie to the Right This Time.

The idea of Higher Ground is to "elevate the dialogue," and thus it's important to remain open-minded to individuals and organizations on all sides of the marijuana-legalization conversation. With that in mind, let's light the peace pipe and reach the roach across the aisle.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DOO-BIE? Strongly opposing marijuana legislation are activists Alan Gordon and Anne Armstrong, who made headlines by bum-rushing a press conference supporting a new state legalization bill in Rhode Island. The duo aren't against the notion of legal weed, but instead believe that taxing the plant is against the teachings of the Bible, and Satanic. They take issue with the language of the law, claiming medical use of cannabis (which they believe is the Biblical plant called "kaneh-bos") outweighs any laws, restrictions, or taxes.

Ian Fraser is mistaken thinking medicinal cannabis (marijuana) is a crock (Going To Pot Here? Mar. 9, 2015). Cannabis has been documented medically for over 5,000 years still without one single death. In Colorado, where it's legal both medically and recreationally, people continue using it for medical reasons. Historically there are so many medical issues treated with cannabis that it's undeniable. Further, another reason to allow sick people to use cannabis that doesn't get mentioned is because it is biblically correct since God created all the seed bearing plants saying they're all good on literally the very first page of the Bible. 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 and they are for the healing of the nations. Christ Jesus risked jail in order to heal the sick.

However, I agree with Fraser, cannabis should be completely re-legalized to keep things honest.

Re: "The Christian case for drug law reform - Marijuana is not God's mistake for the government to fix, says Rep. David Simpson of Longview," Thursday news story.

One of Rep. Simpson's arguments for legalizing marijuana seems to be as follows: Marijuana occurs in nature, and since nature is God's handiwork, it is good and therefore governments should not oppose it. As he states: "I recognize the innate goodness of everything God made .. ."

Does this include tobacco? Devastating tornadoes and earthquakes? How about all manner of deadly microbes? All of these are elements of nature. How are these innately good?

Marijuana Is Not God's Mistake for the Government to Fix, Says Rep. David Simpson of Longview

As a Christian, I recognize the innate goodness of everything God made and humanity's charge to be stewards of the same. In fact, it's for this reason that I'm especially cautious when it comes to laws banning plants. I don't believe that when God made marijuana he made a mistake that government needs to fix.

Regrettably, that's not the course we have pursued on more than one occasion. In the name of protecting the public, certain substances have been declared evil and contraband. So evil are these substances that state and federal agents are empowered to enforce laws with little to no regard for constitutional protections of individual rights, the sanctity of one's home or the right to travel freely.
