Biblical scholar Stan White condemned America’s Drug Enforcement Agency this week over their ever escalating war on marijuana and suggested they’re in league with the Devil.

“Caging humans for using the God-given plant must halt. The only biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it be used with thankfulness,” Mr White explained in a letter published in leading US newspaper the San Francisco Examiner.

“Cannabis should be legalized, and one reason that doesn't get mentioned is because it is biblically correct since God our father indicated he created all the seed bearing plants, saying they are all good on literally the very first page of the Bible ( see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30 ).  The work of the Food and Drug Administration along with the Drug Enforcement Agency is not only ludicrous, it's 'Luciferous.',” he added.

His Biblically correct interpretation matched those of many posted on the web, including a detailed analysis on civil liberties portal which includes a similar conclusion on the diabolic nature of the war on drugs.

“The Bible says that God created hemp for people to use "as meat," (i.e., to consume), that its seed oil is to be used as an ointment, and that cannabis is "to be received with thanks-giving of them which believe and know the truth." Paul also warned that some people would "speak lies in hypocrisy" and prohibit us from using it,” the site points out.

“It also says that we "shall not bear false witness" about people who use cannabis, nor judge them because that judgement is reserved to the Lord. The Lord hates those who speak lies and sow discord among brethren. For those people harassed and imprisoned for using cannabis rightfully, Jesus offers these words of comfort, "Blessed are those persecuted for righteousness’ sake: For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven”, they say.

In more bible related lifestyle news, Texan preacher Reverend Bob Harrington attracted international attention last week when he attacked US celebrity role models Jessica and Ashlee Simpson for using ‘horniness’ to sell their music.

“Jessica and Ashlee will reap the dismal crops they are sowing,” Reverend Harrington suggested in an interview with Australia's New Weekly magazine.

“Their breasts will sag and their faces will wither and they will be left with nothing but a hollow shell,” he predicted, “They don't represent American standards and certainly not Christian standards,” he claimed.

Pot Links: (Did Jesus use cannabis? ‘Ancient wines were always fortified, like the "strong wine" of the Old Testament, with herbal additives: opium, datura, belladonna, mandrake and henbane. Common incenses, such as myrrh, ambergris and frankincense are psychotropic; the easy availability and long tradition of cannabis use would have seen it included in the mixtures . . .’) (Marijuana and the bible quotes) (Pacman on pot game)
