Reader: God speaks in favor of marijuana three times on the first page of the Bible

Our post about a Colorado Board of Health ruling that will likely lead to the rejection of approximately 2,000 medical marijuana doctor recommendations fired up commenters aplenty.

But one reader stood out by citing passages from a certain Good Book.

Letyourvoicebeheard writes:

Genesis 1:11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. 1:12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

There you have it folks.... God says, on the FIRST page of the Bible, THREE times, that mj (seed bearing plant) is good, and there to be used.

Just sayin'....
