Christian Cannabis … A new Christian website to open the conversation, exchange and participate in the debates surrounding the legalization of cannabis …
En discovering that the founder of the famous website XXX Church – which fights against sexual addictions – develops a site named Christian Cannabis, the first idea is to think that after pornography, Craig Cross tackles the fight against addiction to cannabis. But it is not so. His approach is more like an open conversation. The goal is for Christians to take part in debates on legalization issues for medical and / or recreational uses of cannabis.
And it seems that Craig has made his choice and is even rather favorable to the legalization already in force where he lives in California. The logo of his site is nothing more than a dove carrying a cannabis leaf rather than an olive branch …
Here is what we read on the homepage of the site:
"What if Christians began to understand how something like cannabis could be used in a beneficial way to improve their lives?
What if we had to accept the idea that legality is not the equivalent of license, and that we should not demonize and condemn everything that we do not understand well?
What if cannabis improved mental clarity, decreased anxiety, and promoted physical healing and integrative well-being?
This was partly my experience … all of a plant. "
The founder of the site therefore extols the effects of cannabis, omitting dangerously to offer a balance to the reader citing its negative effects.
Craig's main argument is a spiritual experience he would have had under the influence of cannabis. It evokes a "spiritual benefit through experienced mental and physical well-being" under the influence of cannabis.
"The Lord met me in a more powerful way than I have ever known in forty-two years on this earth. My head stopped spinning and I heard his voice. I have clarity. I had the direction. I left my head and let God enter my heart in a lasting and visceral way. "
Concluding as well,
"Call me crazy, but this little green cross pointed my eyes to the true cross, and I finally saw it. "
Not surprisingly, since cannabis is an "amplifier of emotions" … His experience that he interprets in a spiritual way is possibly purely physiological and related to the use of a psychotropic.
If the therapeutic use of cannabis is increasingly considered in many countries, on the classic pharmacological basis of the search for the famous benefit / risk – moreover common to all medicines – "the spiritual use" would be a real novelty for Christians.
The Rastafarians have experimented with them for a long time, invoking the passage from Genesis 3:18, "you will eat grass of the field"! Other beliefs use it for funeral rituals and feel they can talk to spirits through this … They also speak of "disconnection from the material world", one of the effects described by Craig.
There is no doubt that this new website will make a lot of ink, especially since the author has also done a great job of prevention around pornography.
The debate seems to be launched among Christians, but let us not forget the list of negative and sometimes irreversible psychiatric effects, and do not confuse spiritual experience with the psychotropic use of a well-known active ingredient …

Here’s what you want to know before visiting your regional medical dispensary:You may need a physician’s recommendation, medical cannabis certificate, and/or whatever proper documentation is needed by your state. Ordinarily, you need to be 18 or older to be eligible for a medical authorization, but exceptions could be made in some conditions for minors with especially debilitating problems. You will usually register with a medicinal dispensary. This is to keep your medical cannabis recommendation or certificate on file for legal and regulatory purposes. There will be a waiting room. This is to control the flow of product and patients, but a simple dividing wall gives patients privacy and direct one-on-one contact using a budtender to discuss medical problems. This process can help budtenders and patients track effective medication as well as have a living record of manufacturers and products for future reference and follow-up. Medicinal dispensaries usually allow you to smell and examine the buds prior to buy. This might vary from state-to-state.
