Apocalypse Sooner or Later?
"I am not sure whether he
knows all of the prophecies and how deep of a student he has been in God's Word, but I

In 1Cor 6:12 Paul writes:
"Everything is permissible for me--but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me--but I will not be mastered by anything."

Personally, I think God would not have put cannabis on the earth if we were not to smoke it.
