Tell lawmakers about opposition to medical marijuana

To The Herald-Whig:

Since children are our future, I feel it would be nice if the church leaders would write to the governor and let him know their feelings on legalizing marijuana.

I hate to think of people, especially children, taking this drug, which could lead to addiction and other harder drugs. Recreational marijuana is not necessary to enjoy life.

Please let the legislators know how you feel before it is too late. The churches did not speak out when prayer was taken out of the classroom, but it is time to let the church lead and not just follow society.
