Smoking pot a mortal sin
#8
Getting drunk is a mortal sin. At what point is the effect of smoking pot as bad as that of getting drunk? Usually (I hope) when people drink they only want a relatively mild effect.  Is that true for people who smoke pot?

However you compare pot vs. alcohol, The Catechism of the Catholic Church certainly can't be just ignored (even if you want to ignore the SSPX).  If you don' t like the CCC, previous teaching would only be stricter.

"Catechism of the Catholic Church" Wrote:2290 The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, or medicine. Those incur grave guilt who, by drunkenness or a love of speed, endanger their own and others' safety on the road, at sea, or in the air.

2291 The use of drugs inflicts very grave damage on human health and life. Their use, except on strictly therapeutic grounds, is a grave offense. Clandestine production of and trafficking in drugs are scandalous practices. They constitute direct co-operation in evil, since they encourage people to practices gravely contrary to the moral law.
