Shouldn’t be a surprise that marijuana causes problems with our mental health but I don’t think people realize how much doing illicit drugs affects someone’s ability to think and make good decisions that please the Lord.
Here’s an interesting read: http://news.yahoo.com/s/hsn/marijuanausecanuppsychosisrisk
Are we seeing more “psychosis” and “schizophrenia” today? Yes. Is there a link between them and THC (marijuana)? Yes, there can be. Any chemical (drug) has SIDE EFFECTS, even merely psychoactive drugs that are less harmful than marijuana.
I hate the argument, “God made marijuana so I can smoke it.” Not true. God made it to protect the plant it lives in from bugs, etc. Marijuana is a POISON. It kills bugs and takes a toll on the body.
God made the poison arsenic and ammonia, too. Should you drink them or smoke them like marijuana? It’s a dumb argument to say, “God made it…it’s natural, so I can smoke, drink, snort, shoot it, or inhale it.”
God looks at your heart for why you are taking the drug!
