Marijuana/Cannabis is Legal...

There's something I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's about something that happened, yesterday.

It's something that many people are happy about.  However, it's something that I am truly upset and sorry to hear happened.

What was it?

It's something our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau did.  It's something that Justin Trudeau told everyone on our Canadian news daily, during the election time, when he was hoping to become elected.  He said he would make Marijuana... legal.

Yes, Justin Trudeau was elected, as you know.  But, as I've stated in the past, I believe Justin Trudeau is trying to hurt Canada.  And, I believe he has done something that will hurt Canada, and Canadians.

Yesterday, was the day when he made Marijuana legal.  Of course, it seems people don't want to call it Marijuana, so most people seem to now call it... Cannabis.

I'll be sharing a few articles with you:

*  Here is a link for the article by nationalpost.com that is entitled, Canada will make marijuana legal on Oct. 17, Justin Trudeau sayshttps://nationalpost.com/cannabis/newsalert-feds-will-make-marijuana-legal-in-canada-on-oct-17-trudeau-says.

Did you read the article?  I won't share the whole thing with you, but will share a bit (I copied/pasted):

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says recreational marijuana will be legal in Canada as of Oct. 17.

*  Here is a link for the article by cbc.ca that is entitled, Cannabis is legal in Canada - here's what you need to knowhttps://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/marijuana-faq-legalization-need-to-know-1.4862207.

I'll share with you a bit of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

Recreational marijuana is legal as of today, but the vision of what a pot-permissive Canada looks like remains somewhat hazy.
There's still a lot we don't know, including what will happen to the illicit dispensaries that popped up in cities across the country in recent years. But here's a look at what we do know as Canadian consumers buy legal cannabis for the first time. 
*  Here is a link for the article by cnn.com that is entitled, Canada just legalized recreational pot. Here's what you need to knowhttps://www.cnn.com/2018/10/17/health/canada-legalizes-recreational-marijuana/index.html.

(CNN)People in Canada are cheering, enduring long lines and honking their car horns in support as the country's first marijuana dispensaries open their doors Wednesday.

Sigh...

Those articles gave information and tried to let people know what they could do and/or what they needed to know.

Do I sound happy?  I'm sure you think I'm not.  I'm hurt.

Yes, I'm not happy.  After all, people need to be sober.

Yes, I realize that some people may comment and say that if they aren't drinking alcohol, then they are sober, even if they are using Marijuana/Cannabis.

If people think this, I do not agree.  After all, using Marijuana/Cannabis will actually make people... high.

Being high, won't make them different from being drunk.

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:".

Amen!  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:.

Everyone who is truly a born again Christian, will want to do what God told us, and won't want to sin.  But, many people will sin... and use Marijuana/Cannabis.

Knowing that years ago, when I was driving the school bus, and was hit by a tractor-trailer (truck) driver, that driver was convicted in court for failing to stop at a stop sign, that he should have stopped at.  However, after leaving the courtroom, he let me and a friend of mine know that he had been taking a drug to keep him awake and had drank several beers. 

Did that make me happy?  No.

After that, when my deceased husband was alive, we were following a convertible car, with the roof down, and saw the couple smoking Marijuana.  Did the man drive well?  No.

Do you think I will be happy driving, now?  No.

I believe that though all those people who are so happy to now be able to use Marijuana/Cannabis legally, there will be many people who may be hurt.  Hurt by those who are high... in various ways. Like driving.

Please realize, that years ago, I was physically hurt by that drunk driver who had done drugs, illegally... and had not been checked by the police for alcohol, that he explained he had used.

Please realize that I am so upset that Marijuana/Cannabis is legal to be used now, because if I am ever hurt again, by someone doing drugs, I would prefer my life to end.  For, I do not want to suffer any worse.

After all, Satan, the devil... always wants people to suffer.

Please pray with me, that people will not become hurt.

Thank you.

May God bless you.


Until next time...
