Legalizing marijuana, is it biblical?

This one is complicated. The Bible does not explicitly state weather or not Marijuana use is permitted, so you have to look deeper to get an answer. The Bible speaks of wine and beer, indicating that consuming these to enhance once mood a bit is permitted, however becoming so inebriated that you are prone to falling into sin is in itself a sin. The key here seems to be avoiding overindulgence with mind altering substances. The Bible states that God gave us green herbs for food and medicinal use, and even praises an herb known as the “plant of renown”. This herb has been shown to provide medical benefits. There have been many people in modern times indicate that the moderate use of Marijuana may make a person seem more Christ like but one should rely on God for this.
