THIS Wat 15; 15) 1 15) NY 1D) Il STOP POT...AGAIN In this upcoming election, Americans will make major decisions, not only concerning political leaders, but also concerning various amendments. Once again, in Florida, we face a “Trojan Horse" in the promotion of medical marijuana, which cracks open the door for the complete legalization. Cannabis has been called joints, reefers, weed, grass, pot, and so on. Vote against Amendment 2. A proposal in 2014, fell just two percentage points short of the 60% majority needed by the pot coalition Medical marijuana is already legal in Florida under the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014, which allows for the use of non-smoked, low-THC cannabis for patients with cancer, certain seizure disorders, and those who are terminal. Amendment 2 would expand the list of options and include stronger, smoked versions of the drug and its distribution through pot dispensaries. Having spent time in Colorado over the last few years, | can attest that the expansion of such facilities leads down the road to addiction, vagrancy, and a host of emotional problems, including erratic behavior, loss of memory, distortion of time and spatial perceptions, and other manifestations. Users are more accident prone and susceptible to car accidents. Psychic dependence can lead to antisocial behavior. It is particularly a bridge to harder drugs. The Bible condemns sorcery, which includes mind-altering drugs (Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Revelation 22:15). Itis no accident that Daniel and his friends, though restricted in freedom in a foreign land, refused the king's wine and drank water and ate vegetables to make themselves strong (Daniel 1:8). Perhaps they understood the truth about the dangers of alcohol in Proverbs 23:29-33. Under the Lordship of Christ, we view our bodies as “the temple of the Holy Spirit" (1 Corinthians 3:16-17). While you may not jump up and down about certain political candidates, you can certainly take a stand on this basic issue and vote. faut bp UPCOMING EVENTS | | NAPLES CHRISTMAS SPECTACTULAR Tickets are available online at fbcn.org, in the Commons or call 1-888-795-1559.
