Marijuana and the Bible: A Conversation with Americas Leading Medical Cannabis Expert by Sasha N Noe
What Does the Bible Teach about the Cannabis Plant?
Answer: The Bible does not mention marijuana pot by name. In the United States , the legal use of this drug, either for recreational or for medicinal purposes, is a hotly debated subject. This is partly because the government considers the plant a high level controlled substance. Its possession is considered a federal offense punishable by up to one year in jail. Penalties for cultivating or selling marijuana are even more severe.
What does the Bible say about? You shall have them for food. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?
