I must say that, for most of my life, I have been very outspoken about my contempt for marijuana use. I have, as many others on this forum have, equated it to drunkenness (which is a known sin). However, I have learned to tolerate it and even appreciate it in some situations. No, I have never used marijuana myself, but it is a FACT that, without marijuana, my wife would be in bed for no less than 50% of her life. But that doesn't mean that even SHE hasn't questioned whether or not she is sinning. She has cried many tears over the OP's question, but our spiritual father has assured her that SHE is committing no sin. What of some of the other "medications" that she has used? Xanax is commonly used by people to get some sort of high, but it was prescribed to her for anxiety. She has taken medicine that has caused her to lose hair, memory, and motor function. To me, that stuff seems FAR worse than the side effects of marijuana. If marijuana allows my wife to live a somewhat normal and happy life, then I can't see our Lord holding that against her, especially when she uses it so sparingly and with such great concern for her spiritual well being. As for recreational use, I am still not a fan, but I believe it is up to one's spiritual father to determine whether it is a repentance-worthy sin or not. By the way, I live in Colorado, where (under state law), medicinal and recreational use are legal.
