That’s a tricky questions. It is a sin in a sense. It really depends on how you smoke it and how much you smoke. Smoking small quantities and smoking for medicinal purposes is ok, but if you’re smoking just for fun, that is wrong.

I don’t think it’s a sin to smoke marijuana. It’s a natural herb that relaxes you. It also has medicinal benefits. I don’t think it’s for everyone though. As I mentioned, it relaxes you and can make you lazy so people who have children have to be very careful. Generally, you want to be sharp and alert when you are caring for children. Besides that the side effects are harmless so I don’t see a problem with it.

From a biblical perspective, vegetables and herbs were provided by God for our nourishment and our health. Marijuana is no different. God placed it on this earth for our healing and benefit. Therefore, it could never be a sin to use marijuana. As a matter of fact, it should be legalized. For years we have cast down Rastafarians and their use of marijuana only to now discover that there is great medicinal benefit to its use. The benefits far outweigh the costs.

No! Absolutely not. The bible says that the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nation. If I boil a little mint or senna or herb, it is for healing. It doesn’t matter how you consume the herb. The herb was meant for the healing of the nation. So if you smoke a weed or drink a tea it’s consuming the leaves that were meant to heal the nation and I do believe that it is healing the nation. Like anything else, it should be used in moderation and with proper supervision. Marijuana is not manmade. It is a gift from the heavens and it should be legalized. Legalize the ting!

God created the plant. It’s a natural herb. I don’t believe that God would condemn you for smoking weed. If however, it prevents you from worshiping Him or if you put it before Him, then I believe that is a sin. God should always be first. I grew up thinking that if you smoked marijuana, you were a bad person. Times have changed. God is awakening people. A lot of religious things keep you from reality. A religious mindset can imprison you. As long as we follow God’s commands and put Him first we will be on the right track.

I think God would be ok with someone smoking marijuana for medicinal purposes. It’s natural and it should be legalized. Like everything else, it should be used under proper supervision and with moderation. I’ve heard that there are no real side effects besides hunger so I don’t see the harm in it.

No, smoking marijuana is not a sin! Marijuana is a herb. The Almighty put it on the earth for a reason. It can help people in many different ways. It’s good for glaucoma and many other illnesses. It should be legalized. Legalize the ting!

I am not a religious person, but I don’t think it’s a sin. I am spiritual and I believe that if it gives you spiritual upliftment you should use it. If we say that smoking marijuana is sinful then we would also have to say that smoking a cigarettes is a sin. Throughout history, marijuana has never claimed lives due to lung cancer. In fact, it is now being used to treat various cancers. Like everything else, it should be used in moderation. I also believe that it could be legalized, but users should be required to have a license in order to use it and it must be properly governed in order to prevent improper use.
