Weed From God 

Humans will always attempt to alter their consciousness. By prohibiting the 100 percent pure, relatively safe and extremely popular God-given plant, cannabis (marijuana), society ends up with fake cannabis that contains untold crappy ingredients [“High Times,” Feb. 17, City Weekly]. There’s no spice without cannabis prohibition. It’s clearly time to legalize and regulate cannabis.

Another reason to stop caging responsible cannabis-using adults that doesn’t get mentioned is because it’s biblically correct, since God, “The Ecologician,” indicated on literally the very first page of the Bible that he created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only restriction placed on cannabis is to accept it with thankfulness (1 Timothy 4:1-5).

  • Becker Does It Better

    I always enjoy City Weekly's Hits & Misses column, and this week's version [Dec. 4, City Weekly], was no exception. Unfortunately, the Rocky III segment, while a nice complement to John Saltas' piece ["Mayor Maybe"], is wildly inaccurate.
