Join us to explore Christianity and marijuana prohibition. Cannabis is thousands of years old and one of the world’s earliest agricultural crops. Cannabis was used medicinally for its properties as a stress reliever, antiemetic, antibiotic, anti-depressive, anti-inflammatory, and other uses across China, India, Africa, and greater distances with trade. The most controversial use of marijuana is as a psychotropic, mind altering drug.
Michael Mistretta will join RAMP Assistant Executive Director Zoe Russell throughout the series. Michael is a graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, and author of Jesus is My Bartender. His experiences as a bartender at an upscale performing arts center during his studies at strict CFNI led him to explore the Bibles’ references to alcohol and wine. We now turn to marijuana, intoxicants, and prohibition at large to explore how it agrees with the Bible as well as today’s modern church.
