President’s remarks on marijuana are in line with the Bible

According to a January 20 article in The Washington Post; President Barack Obama stated that marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol. The President was discussing the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington State.

The President made his comments during an interview with The New Yorker.

The President’s comments were met with both praise and outrage. Fox News stated that marijuana legalization and the President’s position would be a public health and law enforcement nightmare. Fox News also feared that underage drug usage would increase in the future.

In the Christian community; the President’s position was not well received. Said one Christian:

“I am furious at the President for the stance he has taken. He continues to find himself on the wrong side of the Bible. However, people should not look to defend one vice over another. The Holy Bible teaches us that committing one sin is like committing them all. Those who seek to position one as more safe or better than the other are wrong.”

The President is right. One is not better than the other.

There are a total of 5 states (including Florida) with some form of legalized marijuana referendum on their respective ballots.

Do you agree with the President’s remarks about marijuana and alcohol?
