I used to use cannabis recreationally when I was a new Christian. I would keep my spiritual life and my cannabis use separate. In one encounter I began praying while high and felt the fear of God come over me, and felt God saying to me ‘how dare you approach me in this way’.. from this time on I felt that there is no room for Cannabis and spiritual encounters. Jesus is the only way to the Father, and all other roads are deception. Further, if a conversation is desired on this topic, it seems prudent to include dissenting voices. Currently, there is only agreement visible and that jeopardizes the validity of any real conversation.
