Canadian students learn to grow pot

As Canadians prepare for the legalization of recreational cannabis this week, 24 students are becoming the first in the country to get formal credentials in growing pot.

Canada will become the first industrialized nation to legalize the recreational use of cannabis on Wednesday, fulfilling a campaign promise by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals who had argued the move would keep pot out of the hands of underage users and reduce related crime.

In brightly lighted climate-controlled rooms at Ontario's Niagara College, protected by fences and layers of locked doors, are 50 cannabis clones that students will learn to irrigate, feed, protect, track with bar codes, test for chemical content, harvest and cure, said program coordinator Bill MacDonald. ...

Williams, it would depend on the form of marijuana being used. Apparently CBD lacks THC and has many medical benefits, making it just another herbal remedy. But when most of us think of medical marijuana, we envision someone lighting up a joint as a pain reliever. I'm not in favor of that at all and actually hold the CBD products as something I wouldn't take.

I still believe that cannabis should be use for medical purpose only.

Trudeau’s plan makes perfect sense to me. Everyone knows that teenagers have never touched booze since the repeal of Prohibition. Surely they’ll quit smoking dope the minute it’s legalized.

I don't find it all surprising that one of the most aggressively secular Western countries is all about marijuana. Other than assisted suicide (which Canada already fully embraces), how else do you escape the hell on Earth that institutionalized sin creates for mankind? Why not just live in the non-reality that drugs create? If you've rejected Christ as most of Canada has done, where else is there to turn? Pray that the light of the gospel would pierce through the inky darkness that covers Canada. And let's not forget that America is just a step behind the religious trends of our northern neighbors.

""legalize the recreational use of cannabis on Wednesday, fulfilling a campaign promise by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals""

This sums up your typical Liberal who want to kill the unborn child, legalize sexual perversions, destroy morals and marriage and any other christian teaching which gets in their way.

So people may as well get high and enjoy the experience of wickedness.

May GOD have mercy upon the souls in Canada.

Satan Trudeau seems to be on a run and is leading many to hell and damnation.

.... for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light ....
So politicians must be right???

The evidence is overwhelming that cannabis and THC are incredibly destructive. The Canadians only need look South to Colorado for this proof. Stories like YIA's further prove the point.

Public policy cannot cause people to become righteous, but it can and should hold off evil and sin. Instead, in this case, it is encouraging sin.

I still remember how many students in high school were stoned out of their mind. I still have memories of a classmate lying on the floor in a daze in the school basement. The constant fights in my area, the smell, the second hand smoke on little children. Someone said the money will go to the government, but the worker said social services are getting worse, and they never see this money.

If anyone really believes PM Trudeau and his cohorts that legalization will prevent underage usage and reduce drug related crime, they've been smoking something.

Perhaps I'm a bit too extreme, but it does not appear that encouraging sin reduces sin. It's like saying that we should sin more so grace may abound further. Sin is a horribly corrosive entity. It eats its way out of any container and spreads as rapidly as it can. It refuses to be limited by anything. And as a deadly poison, it leaves its victims dead. There is only one remedy -- the Triune God. The Father gave us to His Son, Jesus. Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins. The Holy Spirit leads us to Jesus then works within us to mortify sin thru sanctification.

Making sin legal never did anything to restrain it. They would have done better to turn to the Lord in humility and faith.
