Just because marijuana/cannabis is a natural substance does not make it safe. Would you take nightshade, a known toxic, poisonous plant just because it grows? As a counselor and a recovering person, I have seen the addiction and horrors of those who cannot get off the influence of this substance, medically or otherwise. I witnessed a person in treatment who tried to kill himself under the influence and was found lying in his blood and how he survived was a miracle. In treatment after 21 days he was still deep into his addiction and not ready to go home like the rest of us. My friend's husband took it for medical reasons, and lost his sanity as he raged and threw me out of his home, screaming I was insane and crazy. It took one of my clients three years to break the habit/addiction of marijuana. With one year of sobriety she is building a new life without sexual abuse and finding her personal love. I find it to be as much a drug as any other toxic substance. That it is natural is not the issue. It is what it does to the person.
It is like someone drinking alcohol to run from reality. You can use any toxic substance to stop the sunlight of the spirit in your life. A drug, is a drug, is a drug. The label of the drug is not the problem. The problem is a person needs to stay toxic free to be rational and have a conscious contact with God.
Encouraging people to use marijuana is for keeping people victimized and without their personal power to be a good follower and not be able to think for themselves. Drugged people have given away their power. The leader, dictator, president can run the show, and the person is without any defense. This is a game.
My newest book, "Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You" explains the woundedness in a person who uses any substance, addiction, even illness to run from reality. I offer the steps to regain a conscious contact with a higher power to restore sanity. amazon.com/Marilyn-Redmond/e/B0069WIKDC
I have 31 years off alcohol and over 15 years off all prescriptions and drugs. I have become sane. Most people blot out their reality someway, Marijuana is just the recent excuse.
"The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping. It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitudes" Aldous Huxley
Marijuana allows people to stay in the prison and not know how to leave.

Have you often felt powerless and without control of your life? Are we really lacking the ability to influence your circumstances? Why do some people get the great results, while you sit on the sidelines?
You have energy in your life. The answer lies in how you use your inner spirit often labeled energy. Some people ignore this beneficial influence and some people have learned to harness their energy and use it well. It is often called chi, prana, or vital life force. An invisible, beneficent, vibrating force that gives us growth and manifests in my life is a new thought for some.
Spiritual power is invisible and usually not included for personal direction and guidance in life. This power can also be thought of as a Creative Intelligence or universal consciousness underlying the totality of things. Edgar Cayce the great psychic of the 20th century called it the Creative Forces and in the movie, Star Wars, called it "The Force".
Over the ages, the message has been that we have little influence over our predicaments. In the past, I believed that I would always be in a terrible, horrible, and painful life being raised and married into domestic violence. After years of playing the victim and giving away my power, I discovered that I did not have to do that. It was time to stop volunteering to be a victim.
Finding different ways to manifest a healthier life style became my new goal.* First, I had to be committed to going to any lengths to change my old ways and ideas. They brought on my depression, harm, and illness. The old ideas were ingrained in me from my family, church, medicine, school, and societies' rules. Instead, I had to trust my inner love/light to support me.
My answer was to change my thoughts and beliefs for new results. I could alter my thinking into a new productive mindset. My imprisonment from false beliefs and thinking could bring freedom. Transforming my attitudes from negative to the positive became a major challenge for my new way of living.
Affirmations became my new encouraging view. Realizing they were simple statements of truth surprised me. I discovered that I had lived in fantasy and not reality. I felt changes happening.
The fact is fear attracts fearful results. Fearful messages edge God out. As I let go of each fear, I started to merge more of God's love and grace in to fill the empty space left.
I began to identify each of my ego's messages that were projecting fear and producing my lifelong misery. That there is a universal law that "Like attracts like" became a new understanding. Sending out loving energy would improve my circumstances. I cannot have fear and faith at the same time.
Staying in fear keeps me immature. A child is afraid of the Boogie Man. With the light of truth, the darkness leaves. I can then respond in a loving mature response. Because I was truly wanting a happy life, my ego needed to be reduced from running the show.*
Discovering a hundred forms of fear was my chief motivation was a new understanding. I found fearful ideas created irrational results. They were the obstacles to a better life; I was ready to let them go. That is why I never could improve my life. I learned, "Let go and let God". I also used a God Box where I placed a piece of paper with each named fear written on it, to release them from my mind. Life started to feel better. It was working.
In addition, resentments had to be recognized and released. They are symbolic of a little child throwing a temper tantrum because something or someone did not go their way. Transforming the anger of the resentment into being upset and then disappointed, I found that furious energy gradually dissolves. Today, I choose to act in helpful ways and forgive.
Directing my power beyond the childish responses opens new doors to abundance and prosperity. This brings a new sense of security and comfort.
Messages of my lack of security and lack of love from the ego were the only obstacles to manifesting happiness and prosperity. Therefore, allowing spirit to flow through me and expand is necessary. Spirituality is energy in expansion. Watching the miracles appear is amazing.
Spirituality is very practical. Moving into a loving basis was exciting to me. My life began to bloom. Changing negative thoughts, words, or actions into positive ones made a difference.
I found a decorative plaque in a bookstore that listed the fruits of the spirit. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."Galatians 5:22-23 is a typical list for the aspects of spirituality. Each week, I practice a different aspect and apply it in my life. Over time, my progress has shown harmony and peace. This is my reward.
When I express gratitude, even more goodness manifests. Listing everything for which I am grateful and adding to my gratitude list, brings further happiness. In addition, learning forgiveness is a major change for me. This removes the victim chains to the past. I found compassion for those people, as they are hurting from their own problems. Learning that we are all one in spirit brings unconditional love. I can love the person and not the behavior.
These ideas change everything. I am free to be myself. Stopping my reacting in fear to responding in love is empowering. I move beyond resentments and fear into maturity knowing everything is exactly as it needs to be for my lessons in growing up. Trusting that the universe will support me in all things brings peace of mind and grace. Being of assistance to others from my newfound love in my heart brings "Heaven on Earth".
