Legalized marijuana : wolf in sheep’s clothing

Legalized marijuana : wolf in sheep’s clothing

By Kevin Palmer

      The Bible says the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. Then, the devil said to Jesus, “All this I will give you, if you bow down and worship me.” Likewise, when it comes to marijuana, the same devil tempts African American entrepreneurs with the promise of tremendous profit if they will, “bow down and worship him.” For this reason, legalized marijuana is a government sanctioned wolf in sheep’s clothing that will eventually consume its share of lives in the Black community.

Moreover, the African American being seduced by government lies is nothing new. Legalized marijuana just happens to be the most recent lie. That is why, the term medical marijuana and its legalization campaign, is the type of lie that would be appreciated by Adolph Hitler who said, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” However, the problem is legalization and adding the term medical does not lessen marijuana’s well documented harmful effects to the human body.

Nevertheless, naked greed overshadows the negativity of marijuana use. Unfortunately, for the love of money many African Americans will believe the lie and exploit each other by buying and selling a harmful product sanctioned by a corporate controlled government. Thus, what was true of the past is true of the present. For Black people, the words of Malcolm X ring true. He said, “You’ve been deceived, hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray, run amok.” Only truth and courage will break the cycle.
