Just when Muslim nations get on your nerves by accusing America of being the most degenerate nation on earth, you pick up the morning paper to see that in Denver, 80,000 pot heads exhaled together creating the biggest cloud of pot smoke in the history of the world.
It was the puff that could be seen around the city and the cheers of the crowd of cannabis craving compulsives rose to the air along with their smoke.
In 2012 elections Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize pot for recreational use for anyone over 21 years of age. The glitch that the voters left behind is that federal law still holds marijuana use and distribution as illegal.
In the old blue law state of Massachusetts the voters waved in medical marijuana along with 17 other states that now allow it.
After an entire generation long fight to eliminate tobacco, with great success, now we have decided that the other ravage to the tender pink lining of human lungs should come in with a bang and a party. Now Muslims can add incongruity that borders on insanity to their dim view of America. Doctors and healthcare professionals must now gear up to an entirely new form of treatment for pot smoker’s lung.
This generation may have long forgotten (if they ever knew it) what happened when the last generation decided to lift the ban on the prohibition of alcohol. Millions of ruined lives, broken families and innocent people mowed down by drunken drivers don’t need to remember – they are the victims. No doubt cheers went up on the day booze was legalized.
When the festive mood dies down in Denver, will the city enjoy the new societal class of imbibing Mary-Janer’s, or will they begin to see that entire personalities and otherwise productive human beings have become giggling, wistful, dopey and hungry just before the final phase of sleepiness carries them off until they wake to puff again?
No one has yet seen what time challenged minds will do to traffic and how many of them will be stopped at green lights and racing through red lights. How will police respond when erratic driving causes them to be pulled over? Now there will be new laws considered to replace the old laws that hindered the spoiled American copiously carnal cannabis crowd.
The other side effect of marijuana, paranoia, will also have to be addressed. Psychologists and psychiatrists will no doubt see a boom in business, but woe to the shrink that suggests that the little puffers give up their devil weed. That would be like denying the 143 women who had to have an abortion to save their lives, no avenue of recourse - the 60,000,000 which had abortions for practically no reason at all - notwithstanding.
Rally organizer, Miguel Lopez said “"You don't have to smoke weed to go to 4/20 rallies. You don't have to be gay to go to a Pride festival. You don't have to be Mexican to celebrate Cinco de Mayo." Its Roe V. Wade thinking at its very best because you don’t have to have your life threatened by child birth, you can just throw babies in buckets for any reason imagined or real.
Lopez also said “It’s a statement about justice and freedom.” But Mr. Lopez like so many of his generation has license mixed up with freedom and he has no clue about real justice. There is a higher form of justice yet to come. Prophetically speaking, both the license of this day, and the justice that follows, has been predicted by Bible prophecy.
Approaching the last days, the bible warns that lawlessness will be pervasive. What was generally considered evil, inappropriate and unproductive will be fully accepted in preparation for the coming of the lawless one known as the antichrist. (2 Thess 2:7-9 NKJV)
Christ breaks into that moment in time, when the party is at its peak. After that is worldwide judgment that leaves the world devastated. Page after page of the bible outlines the judgments but in the end it is clear why some will not make it into the coming kingdom – one of those reasons is drug use.
Using sorcery to bewitch an entire city to do something wrong is not a new thing (Acts 8:9) but it’s the Greek word for ‘sorcery’ that was used in the original language of the bible that is something that should be used to warn every dope abuser in the nation before they puff their way into reprobation.
The word sorcery in the bible is the Greek word ‘pharmakos’ and it means the ‘use and dispensing of drugs.’ Quite clearly it says that those who are involved with the use or distribution of drugs cannot inherit eternal life.
“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, (pharmakos) and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” (Rev 22: 15-17)
Unrepentant giggling and munching will end with eternal damnation. That hardly seems anything to celebrate and it is not freedom.
