In today's episode we dive into the HIGHly controversial subject (especially within Christianity) of cannabis. We talk about our perspectives of its medical and recreational uses as well as the stigma that often follows the topic of marijuana.
We dive into the history of marijuana and even the potential mentions of this plant throughout the Bible.
We are in NO WAY experts, theologians, or doctors and do NOT condone the use of marijuana for everyone. Each person is different and if you are under the age of 25, please consult with your doctor. If you're under 18, don't use it at all… your brain will thank us later.
We encourage you to do your own research before engaging in marijuana usage in any way. Below are research studies and articles to get you started but take advantage of this incredible world full of resources and experts… and most importantly, JUST TALK ABOUT IT. Start conversations with people and see how they feel about it. Be RESPECTFUL and remember that our differences are BEAUTIFUL. Have conversations to learn and hear & not to convince and control.
Thank you guys!

1 Peter 5:8 ESV
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
