    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'm not catholic but what is the difference between having a cup of coffee everyday or smoking a j a day? besides the fact some idiot pushed real hard to get pot banned for personal reasons and 1 is a stimulant-nothing. do you feel its morally wrong to take an aspirin or something like that? I think your in the clear.

    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.

    Let me help to ease your mind here:

    I forget exactly where, but somewhere in Scripture Paul tells Timothy to drink wine medically for some physical ailments (something with his stomach I think).

    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.

    I guess you could consider overindulging on it is morally wrong, that is if you believe in something like overindulging actually exists. I dont. lol

    i second that, i think "indulgment" is a great need in every ones life, to indulge brings up self-esteem to me.

    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.

    What I have always found in the Catholic faith and the way families internalize particular situations, is that there is this EXTREME and relentless guilt factor.

    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.

    No thing in and of itself is evil. The heart of man makes it evil. I think I heard that at church many years ago.
    Weed is no different.

    I don't remember reading in the bible anywhere that smoking marijuana was prohibited.....as a matter of fact doesn't the bible hint at it being a usefull plants?

    What is the Word of God on the Cannabis plant? The hemp plant (scientific name: cannabis, slang: marijuana) is one of the many useful herbs "yielding seed after its kind" created and blessed by God on the third day of creation, "and God saw that it was good." (Genesis 1:12) He gave hemp for people to use with our free will.
    God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth.…To you it will be for meat." … And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:29-31) The Bible predicts some herb's prohibition. "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times, some shall … speak lies in hypocrisy … commanding to abstain from meats which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (Paul: 1 Timothy 4:1-3)
    The Bible speaks of a special plant. "I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more." (Ezekiel 34:29) A healing plant. On either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare 12 manner of fruits, and yielding her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelations 22:1-2) A gift from God.
