    TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Be Sober-Minded and Watchful! Recreational Marijuana Now Legal in Two States

    Girls, many laws came into fruition as a result of this week’s election. One of the most controversial was the legalization of recreational marijuana in both Colorado and Washington.

    While many fans of this law were pleased with the results, others are concerned, including us at Project Inspired. Drug abuse already is a huge problem in our society–will the legalization of recreational marijuana make it worse? Do you think the new law encourages smoking to get high?

    In the short-term, marijuana causes a slanted sense of time, anxiety, depression, paranoia, dreamlike thoughts and short-term memory loss. It’s also considered a gateway drug because it instills a sensation that many users want to prolong and enhance, which usually can’t happen without stronger drugs.

    As Christians, we need to be respectful of our bodies and careful about what we put into them!

    Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

    There also are known long-term effects of sustained marijuana use. Not only is it addictive, but it decreases the function of the immune system and the brain. Additionally, because it alters your mental state, it can make users behave aggressively or irrationally.

    Now that two states have made recreational marijuana legal, more states surely will follow suit. So we call upon you ladies to guard yourselves and respect your bodies and minds!

    Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

    Ladies, how do you feel about marijuana becoming legal in two states? Do any of your friends smoke it?
