Is smoking marijuana morally wrong?
Im a practicing catholic. I know about morals and what is right and wrong but im having issues with weed. Here is some issues that im dealing with on a personal level if anyone wants to join in feel free.
I know that to be good christian you have to abide by the laws but sometimes the laws are misconstrued. Lets take for example abortion. Abortion is legal but morally wrong. So just right there some laws are even wrong. So i think that marijuana even though its illigal is morally on the same page as drinking. Drinking in my opionion is worse than marijuana. you can get alcohol addiction, overdose on alcohol, impare your motor skills so severly that it kills other inocent people. just to name a few. Even our state is in dispute on the legality of marijuana and other states as well. marijuana has just had this bad misconception that has led people to think that it is morally wrong when in all reality its not. I cant drink alcohol because im slightly allergic and have always smoked weed to aleve some issues i have like chronic pain. I guess im just looking for some reasurrance from my fellow tokers out there. My wife understands and has accepted the fact that im a smoker. She is a baptized and practicing catholic.
Am i wrong here?
oops mods please move this to the appropriate forums. sorry.

I am morally F*#@ed than!!
yeah dude, well if smoking weed is wrong, then i must really be going to hell, because I molest my weed plants.
It's not morally wrong to me.
I know EXACTLY what you are going through here. Just last year I went into a major Christian kick..and had to figure out if I could continue smoking my cannabis.

I also started thinking about something...this is strictly from a theological point of view..so please if for some reason it bothers you (being anyone who reads this) please just ignore it and chalk it up to a disagreement and leave it at that:
Did God create everything here on earth? Yes. Does that include cannabis? Yes. Did God say in Genesis that he gave all green plants to us for food? Yes.
Will you get high if you eat cannabis? YES.
That is just some things to get your brain going. Feel free to hit me back with any direct moral issues you may be having. I would be entirely glad to help you ease your mind.

You're not at all wrong. Please don't take offense to my saying this...I am an ex-Catholic...went to church 6 days a week, confession.....the whole nine yards.

I'm with you. I'm COMPLETELY against abortion. At the same time, I do not feel "any" Christian is entitled to inflict their personal view upon individuals. God gave us free will....right or wrong.
What's "wrong" with MJ I ask? Is it causing you to steal? lie? manipulate? Are you suddenly a menace to society for partaking of the herb? There are SO, SO many legal drugs out there the Catholic church would never even dream of questioning.
Don't ever let anyone inflict guilt upon you for opting to smoke a "j" vs. popping some chemicals.
Being a christian is morally wrong.
