Oklahoma Senator Quotes Genesis 1:29 to Seek Marijuana Legalization

Oklahoma state Sen. Constance Johnson said, “We’ve experienced anything from downright disregard to ignoring us to telling us to, ‘Go to hell’ pretty much. And this is where we’ve had to go. We’re taking this to a vote of the people because we know the people of the State of Oklahoma, in spite of what the policymakers refuse to do, want to have a voice on this matter.”

She added, “We’re putting forth Genesis 1:29 as the basis of this campaign. God created this wonderful, miraculous plant and we know that it has been vilified for the last 100 years, and it’s time to change that in Oklahoma.” ...

I don't advocate drugs either and never said I did,but I can see the damage that is being done by the overzealous law and order types,do gooders if you will,who completely ignore the smoke screen of the drug "war" and the effects of it in many other areas of life....again is innocent until proven guilty not understandable to you ? talk about judging.....the topic is not sodomites so why bring it up ?

SC,no I do not speak from experience,i guess you are one of those people who does not care about anything unless if affects you personally,congratulations,your kind are many and have done great damage to America.

Like penned suggested do some research and see what this so called "war" has done to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the whole concept of innocent until proven guilty.

The billions upon billions made in the illegal drug trade that your beloved government is involved in.

I know you don't care about any of that because its all for the children etc etc....the do gooder is always convinced of his or her own goodness.

The mention of my "tone" is just an attempt to marginalize facts and prop up the myths you subscribe to and your love of government,control and the brute force of law.

I think Strat made a terrific point, and I am also tired of well meaning people regulating my people into the ground, where they cannot grow a healthy industrial food seed because others will grow a similar seed and abuse it, tired of the jail mills too. Just want people able to sell milk from their cow without getting swat teamed. Sooner or later people do get tired of it.

SC, who's the drug runners anyway? why not research the opium wars, maybe that will give you more of a historical perspective in which to insert your war on drugs?

...you speak from experience? I do see the drug element mentioned in your examples..
I do know that it was better when abortion wasn't legal...it was better when we didn't accept sodomy as an "alternative" lifestyle...consider the children. And "yes", children will do what they see you do. Do you want them to be alcoholics or potheads? They will incline to follow what is done rather than what is said. This is a biblical principle. ..sorry Strat, but your comments generally have a "chip on the shoulder" tone. Not everybody is out to get you or to tear you down.

Having your door kicked in the middle of the night,your family thrown to the floor in a mistaken drug raid is ok with you I guess.

Buying a used car with drug residue in it from the previous owner then having it searched and seized and you arrested is ok with you I guess.

Being under suspicion for spending your own money past a certain amount is ok with you I guess.

The creation of the gestapo known as the DEA with god like powers of search,forfeiture and seizure and the constitution be damned is ok with you I guess because they are protecting you from the baaaadd people...get out a little more and educate yourself and try to understand what innocent until proven guilty means.

I would be interested to know which freedoms have been restricted through the, what is misstated as increased legislation, but is actually a much laxer legislation? Adultery used to be legal grounds for divorce but now we have no-fault divorce. Sodomy used to be illegal. It is now legal in many states as is pot...and on it goes. This country is under judgment. That's why what used to be deemed vile is controlling us. The Lord has turned us over to that which we love...sin. Further, it's not an issue of placing trust in the government nor is it an issue of grounds for superiority. Any one who knows Christ, knows that it is only by yielding to His Spirit by which we avoid falling into the snare of sin. There is nothing good within any one of us so there is nothing which we can boast in and of ourselves. Laws, when properly placed, were meant to be used as a deterrent and as measures of restraint. I think, what we will see, are even laxer ones. We will live in a "sodom and gomorrah"...actually, we do now.

Doesn't realy matter does it, since legislation has solved nothing and simply creates more legislation that eventually limits the freedom of all by offering cover and excuse to violate even more of our constitution with attitudes expressed as "if it will save just one life" and "we must protect ourselves from(enter enemy here)

There are a ton of things I think and in some cases know are wrong but to insist that all of them be illegal suggest two things,first a false faith and hope in government as the answer to everything and second a sense of moral superiority to those around me by thinking the only way anybody else can get anything right is under penalty of law,i will be ok of course because I am morally superior,others however will circle the drain first chance they get...we are a nation drowning in laws and have nothing but ever increasing wickedness and tyranny to show for it so obviously laws and the abundance of laws are not the answer...let's judge by results which are clear and definite failure.

It's interesting how people will complain if one wants to have laws that might restrict them from engaging in some destructive behavior, but when it comes to judging the hearts and motives of those who understand the necessity for them, they are the very first one to judge. It is necessary to judge actions otherwise we could not correct our children or have a judicial system lest we be guilty. We are, however, not to judge hearts. That's Biblical whether one accepts it or not. I understand that few people like to exercise license in interpreting the Scriptures. We have probably been guilty of such but thus saith the Lord.

No, I do understand, which you don't, the need for regulations and laws. Your definition of law is anybody can do anything as long as it doesn't negatively impact you. If the don't build the guy down the street house to code no big deal, as long as they do yours. People can do live anyway they want to as long you can go merrily on your way with no negative effect. Are we over regulated? Yes. Is the government too far reaching? Yes. Does that mean all laws and regulations are bad? No.
Heroine was legal back when they made coca-cola and maybe you want more people high on heroine in our society but I will pass and say it should be restricted to the medical use. You think we should do away with the war on drugs, sure and be like Mexico, that would be a big improvement. Lets legalize polygamy, prostitution, mercy killing too. Oh wait, you don't want those, you want people to do exactly as you want in those matters.
I am going merrily on my way because it is my life I will give an account of and not the lives of others,what a shock that will be to people like you who expect to receive credit for the way they have tried to force others to live...oh and the drug cartels thank you,they couldn't have done it without you.

Sadly, it probably won't be long before we unite with Mexico, legalize polygamy and probably beastiality too, prostitution (which already is legal if you consider porn on the internet,hollywood and status quo tv with all of the women exploiting their bodies for filthy lucre),and, of course, mercy killing...
We are on that path and have been on that path for a long time.

grateful servant... they 'd rather have their gm corn, their kidney shut downs and their infertility and be on synthetics the rest of their lives, as in agenda 21, as in the man I talked with who was involved with abortions said would happen to us useless eaters.

you have gone "against" the beast by finding a natural seed that brought resolution to your health problems, you have not complied with their myths and fables.

I say ban grapes! that way no one can make wine!

why not lock ourselves into padded rooms, that way we'll never get hurt?

why not help the communists along, who want to shut down industry by crippling the economy with regulations and split of family?

why not make prisons "for profit" by privatizing and fill them up with people who have harmed no one?

if you cannot have an economy based on land and industry, then why not go to policing each other until there's nothing left?

Grateful Servant,

I've commented a few times on the darker side of pot, but don't think I ever mentioned my views on medi MJ. I fully agree that it is a good thing for those who genuinly need it to curb pain and/or nausea. I really don't see the difference between taking this or some other prescription. They're all drugs, but pot has a stigma attached to it. Words like illicit, illegal, street drugs, and the like. Do I think it's okay to get high for recreational purposes, legal or not? No. Do I agree with utilizing it for genuine medicinal purposes to provide much needed relief? Yes.

Nonsense,we didn't have anarchy 100 years ago or 200 years ago,you define anarchy the way most people do,which is anybody doing anything you don't approve of or wouldn't do yourself....the more laws the better to make people live exactly as you want them to,things the way you want them to be because anything else is "anarchy"....this is the attitude that has created the police state we live in.

Sorry, got cut off...

...I'm not being melodramatic. I was told there were no more medical interventions left to try. They threw the kitchen sink at me along with half a pharmacy before I started looking for something "unconventional". No one that personally knows me would regret for one second the choice I made to try medical cannabis. They know what I was like before my accident, after my accident, and now back to normal.

There are many people out there that just want to be better. They are sick of pain, of painkillers, of nausea, and the fear of never being "normal" again. It is worth the time to educate the population and it's about time we get rid of the existing notion of "the hippies just want to get high". I know so many Christian Brothers and Sisters that could benefit from medical cannabis. I know it might not be the cure to everything and it might not work for everyone - but it worked for me, and I am sure it can work for others. And, it can't be stated enough - you don't need to smoke it and you don't need to get high for medical cannabis to be effective. So before you misunderstand me, I am talking about eating a raw plant without getting high. Doesn't this change the dynamic of the issue?

Hello,

This is just another glaring example of our times.

Let this be a WARNING and a CALL to all who truly. Pursue/Follow Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

WARNING: this is a result of a weak and ineffectual church. I/We have spent to much time on our selfs and not enough time with Christ and the Father on our knees. Thus the current downward spiral were in!

CALL: Let's humble ourselves before our God and Savior,
REPENT, REPENT, REPENT every one of us!
Cry out to God for Holy REVIVAL!

Is the life were living, worth Christ dieing for?
