Christians Back Cannabis Legalization Effort

I'm glad to see this. (link to article below) I don't like mixing religion with politics, but basing a law on a biblical principal may not be a bad thing 100% of the time. Like the law against murder. Everyone knows that is a bad thing, and it is forbidden by several holy books. This is like that. Everyone knows cannabis isn't a bad thing, It is not forbidden in any holy book that I know of. It is given to humans in one holy book I know of:

King James Bible
"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

I support their efforts.

Oklahoma Senator Quotes Genesis 1:29 to Seek Marijuana Legalization

~Quoted from article~
""We're putting forth Genesis 1:29 as the basis of this campaign," KFOR.com quoted Sen. Johnson, a Democrat, as telling supporters at the State Capitol on Friday after filing the petition with the office of the Oklahoma secretary of state.

"God created this wonderful, miraculous plant and we know that it has been vilified for the last 100 years, and it's time to change that in Oklahoma," added the senator, who has led efforts, along with attorney David Slane, to legalize pot."
