What is the Churches postition on marijuana?

[quote='Catholic777'][quote]I've heard that perhaps a compromise (for all drugs, not just alcohol) would be instead of banning them completely or allowing them completely...to regulate them and to have people need a license to buy them. And if you are ever caught publically drunk or high, especially driving, they take it away. For minor infractions for, like, a year or whatever. For major...forever. Perhaps it would electronically track how much you had purchased recently and have a cap limit on that. It's an interesting idea, I just wonder how they'd make sure only responsible people got the license. Surely some would slip through the cracks...but still, it's something to consider.

Again, the state has some control, but very little-largely and constitutionally, to protect the innocent (unborn and Terri Schiavo's). A license..where would that stop?Smokes?Alcohol?Having Children?

You may be good intentioned, but relying on the State far too much. That could open up a backdoor to abuse. Sex, regualted normally by the Church, only by the state when it is abusive-ie, rape or sodomy.If it is "gotta have it all the time", it is normally under the purview of the Family, Church and in all-else-fails, state. <A title=Subsidiarity href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subsidiarity" target=_blank>subsidiarity</A>
