Lol you're a funny guy

Genesis 1:12

"And the earth brought forth grass, And herb yielding seed after his kind, And the tree yielding fruit, Whose seed was in itself, After his kind: and God saw that it was good. "

And the definition of a herb being

Herb
noun
noun: herb; plural noun: herbs
1.
any plant with leaves, Seeds, Or flowers used for flavouring, Food, Medicine, Or perfume.

And it has many medical benefits such as:
1.
It Fights Cancer
This is the big one that everybody"s been talking about. Both scientists and the federal government have released a good amount of evidence showing that cannabinoids fight certain types of cancer. It doesn"t get much more substantial than that.

2. It Can Help Depression

Depression is one of the more widespread, Yet least talked about medical conditions in America. And research is showing that cannabis can help relieve people.

"Using compounds derived from cannabis " marijuana " to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression, " said Samir Haj-Dahmane, Who is spearheading the research at Buffalo University " research that is only just now beginning to ramp up.

3. It Provides a Safer Alternative to Other Drugs and Alcohol
Cannabis can be harmful if you use it irresponsibly, But it"s nowhere near as destructive as alcohol for example. With wider availability, Cannabis can and will become a substance of choice " and likely save a lot of lives (and livers) in the process.

I quote
"It is very difficult to determine whether any statistical correlation between marijuana use and violent behavior are causally linked"

Just because someone has used cannabis in their lifetime doesn't mean they wouldn't have committed a violent crime later on in their life the article you presented didn't give any infallible evidence to your argument.

Wanting to heal yourself from an ailment isn't the same thing as lust and greed, Which can be detrimental to an individuals relationships, Eg lust a married man can lust after other women which could be damaging to the relationship with his and or children ect with greed con artists eg (bitconnect), Corrupt government ect

Also define immoral behaviour and give scripture.

He made it and he would want us to have it

Let us remember whether or not the link has been established YET the tremendous amout of evidence that shows people who use pot regularly become very violent, If they were violent they become more violent, If they were not violent sometimes they become so there is a corelation causation is hard to prove but not impossible 50-year study finds causal link between cannabis and subsequent violent behavior

In conclusion, The results show that continued cannabis use is associated with a 7-fold greater odds for subsequent commission of violent crimes. This level of risk is similar to the increased risk of lung cancer from smoking cigarettes over a similar duration (40 years). The authors suggest that impairments in neurological circuits controlling behavior may underlie impulsive, Violent behavior, As a result of cannabis altering the normal brain functioning in the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex.

The bible tells us to "Be sober, Be vigilant, For your adversary is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. "

Smoking weed doesn't give you a sober mind.
