  1. Pastor, if you're watching this. Learn how to use google, youtube, and other outlets (Im pretty sure one of your younger workers can show you how since they most likely brought you here). Because all im hearing is force fed information they try to spew on TV in order to confuse the masses with unnecessary paranoia and propaganda

  2. Does this man know that people under 21 still have access to marijuana when it's illegal? And no, legal pot isn't primarily going to "urban areas". This is just ridiculous. Likes it's some play by the government to hurt "the community". Allergies? Well let's outlaw peanuts too because one peanut can kill someone who doesn't know they're allergic. I can't wait for this generation to turnover.

  3. GENESIS 1:11-13,THEN GOD SAID," LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH GRASS & SEED BEARING *HERBS*=WEED….& THIS WAS THE 3RD DAY & GOD SAW ALL THAT HE HAD MADE & SAID,"IT IS GOOD" PLUS GEN.1:26-31,"THEN GOD CREATED MALE & FEMALE", AND THIS WAS ON THE 6TH DAY= SO SINCE GOD MADE WEED BEFORE HE MADE MANKIND, THEN WHO AM I TO JUDGE WHAT HE SAID WAS,"GOOD"!!✊😎😂😂😂✌

  4. Pastor One thing that is missing from your Plea is PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY..If you got a Problem with Black Kids on Drugs…Then your audience should be parents.There is also alcohol..That is Legal..and again You would be pushing for prohibition as Alcohol also can be obtained by Minors…Parenthood is the Problem not A Plant. Also The Scripture makes no mention of Marijuana being a Vice or Sin..According to Jewish Aramaic interpretation The Oil that Jesus was annoited with..contains Oil Extract from Marijuana..Using your position in Clergy to inflate your Authority on this Subject is reckless and irresponsible…

  5. So his entire argument, from start to finish, is that kids are getting a hold of pot. OK. Isn't that more of a parenting problem? I mean, kids shouldn't have alcohol and cigarettes either, so should we ban those to?

  6. Why blame everybody? There are millions who can benefit from this drug. Just because you black and brown folks want to abuse it doesn't mean it shouldn't be out there. If you want black and brown people to stop abusing something, take away their food stamps.
