God created this world, and all that HE created, that HE created, is good. If cannabis being a plant that naturally grows in nature, I don't see how it is a bad thing in itself, by itself.
That being said, sobriety is touched upon. Sobriety is vital to a believer. And the way I see it right now, so long as nothing is abused to alter or abuse your mind and body, then it's all good. It's about how we use it. Cannabis, undeniably, has beneficial qualities. I don't see the harm in using it for medicine.

Getting closer to God would be seen as useful. I think Moses was probably a Shaman of some proto-Judaic religious nomads who had wandered out from under the protection of the ancient Egyptians. Psychedelic drugs would be useful for getting to know God, but they would also come to be controlled by the priest class.
If we look at how the people of the bible lived, Jesus himself is described as a wine-o. They have water for a feast, but Jesus says lets party and turns a lot of water into a lot of wine.
My real point was that no one during the past would have had the knowledge or terminology to call them drug addicts, for they would just say it was some dark magic or act of god depending on the outcome of the drug addicts actions.
From linked article
We’ve all heard it, and it sounds true: People in medieval Europe drank beer because it was safer than water. Water was dirty and carried all sorts of disease, after all. But taking a closer look at medieval texts has shown that it’s not the case at all.

The issue with cannabis is it is a mind altering drug, it can be used to contact spiritual beings
It is forbidden in the bible to use it in that way

I'm curious where in the bible this is stated.

God said to Adam and Eve they can eat everything in the garden except for one thing...... and it wasn't a hemp plant.

Thanks a bunch for the Poison Ivy that I wiped my ass with yesterday.
Also, about those mosquitos that got into my house- while scratching their bites I noticed a giant tick sucking the blood out of my leg...
Really appreciate that.
