Friends Talking Faith

April 124, 2018 – Faith & Society: The Legalized Marijuana Fight


Season 11, Episode 17

Pot, Marijuana_and_Religion.jpgWeed, Grass, 420, Ganja, Joint, Blunt, Cannabis, Reefer, Broccoli, Mary Jane… And many more street names. On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and the ongoing national conversation — and in some cases battle — regarding the legalization of marijuana. Some would consider it a debate, others would call it a battle, regarding the legalization of marijuana in the United States. And while more than half of the states in the U.S. have legalized marijuana in some form or fashion, federal laws remain in place that prohibit various aspects of its legalization. The federal government — and states which have legalized marijuana – seem to be poised for battle. What does faith have to say about this issue of the use of marijuana? We will discuss it from our differing faith perspectives. Marijuana, what does faith have to say about it? – That’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
