Oklahoma Senator Use Verse From The Book of Genesis To Support Marijuana Legalization!
Lord have mercy, Oklahoma Senator Constance Johnson has cited Genesis 1:29 as a reason to legalize pot. The scripture states,
“Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."Johnson has interpreted the scripture to mean God made the plant so it should be legal for use. This Genesis verse is often used by marijuana users to justify their use. I'm not surprised. Any Bible verse can be taken out of context to justify virtually anything.
“We’re putting forth in Genesis 1:29 as the basis of this campaign,” Johnson said. “God created this wonderful, miraculous plant and we know that is has been vilified for the last 100 years, and it’s time to change that in Oklahoma.”The earth was cursed and changed since because of mankind's sin. (Genesis 3:17-19).
