Quote: So I stand by my comment.
Then you stand by a self-admittedly erroneous statement. If there is any possible morally legitimate way to do the action, in this case using cannabis, then it by definition cannot be intrinsically sinful. Since you agreed that my example would be a morally licit action, you've undermined your own statement. So now we agree that there are some morally licit uses of cannabis. The only question is where do we draw the lines.

Furthermore you're example of abortion is absurd. Murdering a baby is an intrinsically evil action, meaning there can be no circumstances in which it is morally licit. Using an intoxicating substance, whether thc or morphine or anything else, is not intrinsically evil because there are some uses that are morally licit.

I wasn't comparing pot itself to abortion, but the logic you were using is exactly the same logic used to push forth incremental change. Its legalized for one very specific use, but soon it's open to general use as a recreational stimulant rather than a medical aid as with cancer patients.

Also, given the lives that many people close to me lead after being introduced to the drug, I can say that there is no generally moral benefit to using such a drug.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
