Does the recreational use of marijuana fall under Christian liberty?
That’s a question that’s being asked with increased frequency, and a question that will most likely cease to be abstract for churches in the near future. Jeff Sessions isn’t going to be Attorney General forever. Once he’s gone, the winds appear to be blowin’ strongly in the direction of the federal government’s legalization of the recreational use of marijuana. At that point, the above question will no longer be able to be placed under the interpretive authority of Romans 13:1.
So, what is the answer to the above question if and when the government’s prohibition of the recreational use of marijuana is lifted?
