Evidently, Pat Robertson thinks marijuana should be legal and treated like alcohol, since we are not winning the war on drugs. He believes that the taxpayers are losing billions of dollars due to the war on drugs and that people should not be sent to prison for possessing marijuana. I've actually read a couple of articles that were published from Fox News and the Associated Press: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/03/08/pat-robertson-pot-should-be-treated-like-alcohol/ and http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hyoNbKwM04w8JIu44H9zyxA_DNEQ?docId=83eee7c134b04068964d5aa50ebfff48. There are many more articles that are on the internet and in the papers that you can reference for yourself.
Now here is my problem, friends (and those of you who are going to make some argument for legalized marijuana and the evils of it versus alcohol may save your breath) - just because we may be "losing" a war against drugs does not mean that we need to join the other side. What in the world is he thinking? Where does it end if we start capitulating to the enemy? If Satan continues to gain ground with the hearts and minds of the people of this world, do we just roll over and let him take over? "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em?"
If we, as Christians, don't stand up for what is right, who will?
" For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1 :18
Do not be deceived, friends. Stand up for what is right. And don't just take the word of anyone, search the scriptures for yourself to see what the truth is!
"For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." 2 Corinthians 11: 13-15
