1 US NY: Column: Christian Hageseth On His First 'Weedery'Sun, 16 Aug 2015

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.

Another reason to allow citizens to use cannabis that doesn't get mentioned (Letter: Pros and cons of alcohol vs. marijuana, March 6), 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 of the Bible.

Another important reason to allow sick people to use cannabis (marijuana) that doesn't get mentioned ("2 Widely Different Medical Marijuana Bills to Butt Heads," March 10) 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 of the Bible.

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. Christ Jesus risked jail in order to heal the sick.

Not one single person has died using cannabis in more than 5,000 years of documented medical use; that's safety on a biblical scale. A sane or moral argument to cage sick citizens who use cannabis doesn't exist.

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.

8 US TX: LTE: Not All God's Handiwork Is GoodMon, 09 Mar 2015

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.
