What If

I can't find the rhyme in all my reason
I've lost sense of time and all seasons
I feel I've been beaten down
By the words of men who have no grounds
I can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your ax has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from inside out

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I've seen the wicked fruit of your vine
Destroy the man who lacks a strong mind
Human pride sings a vengeful song
Inspired by the times you've been walked on
My stage is shared by many millions
Who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one We are strong
The more you hold us down the more we press on

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I know I can't hold the hate inside my mind
'Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your
life.

So I'll just ask a question
What if?
What if your words could be judged like a crime?
-Creed




"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of Temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes at the very principles upon which our government was founded."
-Abraham Lincoln



"We must not blindly add to the body count and the terrible cost of the War on Drugs, only to learn from another Robert McNamara 30 years from now that what we've been doing is, 'wrong, terribly wrong.'" Walter Cronkite - 1995





Have you ever needed a lawyer, but couldn't afford it? Now you can.

Message: re: They Thought They Were Free... That was very powerful. I'm reading that Mayer excerpt thinking, "Yeah, the drug war has really boiled the froggies nicely here." Then I got to the end and saw that it was Hitler Germany and realized a different set of froggies were described, which were being boiled that same way.

From: António of Portugal on 2001-04-02 Message: I will write it in my birth language and i hope you have portuguese friends.

Questions:

From: George of CA on 2001-03-27 Message: Do you have any support groups in Southern CA?

Suggestions:

From: Mike of ft.smith, ar on 2001-03-15 Message: Though I disagree with oyur support of sourcery, I can't help but also think, by reading you "mission", and I thought I'd give you my opinion about you "mission" statements. You seem to have no cause, for your statements of beliefs are not to exault Jesus Christ, you beliefs mixed in with the Truth, makes it a half-truth, and you tirelessly labor in vain on one subject, while thousands people die without ever hearing the Gospel. Though I do not endorse your mission, I still believe if you would put more effort into fruitful things, what about the thousands of Christians getting slaughtered in China, and Iran? And what about the Gospel?!!! What about Jesus!!!!? Isn't this life about Him anyway instead of us persuing after our youthful lust such as smoking weed?

From: Richard of MS, on 2001-03-28 I must respond to Mike First, We don't encourage or support sorcery (the use of power gained from the assistance or control of *evil* spirits) or any type of magic or use of supernatural powers (other than God's).

To say that Christians who oppose cannabis prohibition, with its attendant damage to our society, support sorcery is like saying modern medical doctors and the pharmacists who fill our prescriptions are practicing sorcery.  We should avoid reducing our dialogue (especially our disagreements) to an argument of semantics.

This misunderstanding is from a misapplication of the Greek word: pharmako (the art, practice, or profession of preparing, preserving, compounding, and dispensing medicinal drugs) from which we get the word pharmacy. The root of this word is the Greek word pharmakon which means *magic charm*, poison or drug.  This is where the confusion originates.  The ancient word does have to do with supernatural magic, but the present meaning as related to cannabis use is distorted and does not apply.

Also, we are not laboring on one subject to the exclusion of all others.  There is nothing to say we cannot use our resources in several directions, with priority given to a few that are most important to us.  Nothing says we cannot help proclaim the gospel of Christ, condemn the persecution and murder of Christians in foreign countries and work to stop the carnage of the war on drugs.  Every day Christians work on many different fronts without diminishing their honor or their love for Jesus.  Our commitment to HIM covers every facet of our lives and is not lessened as we direct our energies to the issues of life.

And of the troubles that plague our country and the world, many pale in comparison to the destruction caused by the Drug War (which is fueled by the war on cannabis users).  Every year in the USA alone around 700,000 people are arrested for the possession of cannabis, causing the loss of employment (the majority of cannabis users are employed), the destruction of social position and the devastation of families -- many of these are Christians (although many churches and pastors would try to convince them otherwise). And many of these Americans are ill and/or dying and have the God given right to find relief where they can, without government or social interference.

And lastly, yes we (Christian and pagan alike) have the right (as outlined in our US Constitution) to ingest anything we wish -- even to smoke weed if we choose.
Highest regards,
Richard

From: Chuck of fl on 2001-03-21 Message: There is an e-petition urging President Bush to end the persecution known as the "war on drugs". It can be found at the following address, I hope you will take a look at it and consider signing, as well as making others aware of it. Please feel free to leave a comment in the discussion section at the bottom of the petition! I posted your address in the discussion section. Sincerely, Chuck

From: Shannon C. Perrow of NC on 2001-03-25 Message: I'd like to start by saying this is a wonderful site you've created. I was looking at your recommended reading list, and realized you didn't have, what I consider, one of the greatest books speaking out against prohibition ever written. If you haven't read it, I urge you to have a look at "The Emporer Wears No Clothes" by Jack Herer. He not only gives his beliefs as to prohibition, but a broad overview of Marijuanas history, including it's useage over 10,000 years, and the events leading up to it's prohibition. whuich interestingly enough, has nothing to do with the drug THC itself, but the plant it is found in. Thank you for your time, and hopefully I've been some help to your cause.

Truth

"Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge."- Paul, I Timothy 6:20.



New Scofield Reference Note to I Timothy 6:20
Permission for use granted by Oxford University Press.

Truth cannot contradict the Bible, since God, who knows all things, kept the writers of the Bible from error.

If theories that rest upon mere speculation or insufficient evidence are presented as fact, in any area of knowledge, e.g. in religion, philosophy, science, etc., they deserve the description that the apostle gives here: "what is falsely called knowledge," from which they are to "turn away". - Note to I Timothy 6:20, They Holy Bible, New Scofield Study System NIV, 1984 Edition, C.I. Scofield, Oxford University Press.




Genesis 1:11-13

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. 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. And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.


I Timothy 4:4 - "For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving." - Paul
