Pope Francis Comes Out Against Marijuana Legalization! Whoa, Major Bummer Dude

| Filed under: DrugsLegal Matters

pope francis comes out against legalization

Pope Francis has a lot of progressive opinions on things that you might think a pope would normally be strict with.

Like breastfeeding in the Sistine Chapel, or blessing a porn star’s parrot.

Heck, he even told church leaders not to alienate children of same-sex couples!

Well now his awesome streak is finally over… he's come out against marijuana legalization.

He said attempts to legalize weed:

"… are not only highly questionable from a legislative standpoint, but they fail to produce the desired effects."

The Pope went on to be even more direct, saying:

"Let me state this in the clearest terms possible: the problem of drug use is not solved with drugs!"

Wow, okay Pope, jeez we get it! LOLz!

Yes, we agree that drugs don't solve a drug problem, counseling does.

But c'mon! Legalization is taking the wind out of the drug cartels' sails! It's actually helping some really sick people too!

Legalization just makes it more available.

Oh well, we guess his cool streak had to end eventually.

    Really, he's still the POPE. You can't expect a pope to come out for something that's still illegal in a lot of places. Geez, give the guy a break. He's amazing in his own right.

    I don't think this actually means what you're insinuating. You shouldn't be that judgemental, it's pretty annoying.

    I don't really understand what youre saying. "His awesome streak is finally over"? Since when does legalizing drugs make you awesome? Medical drugs do help some people, but they could be easily misused. I don't think that legalizing drugs makes you "cool" at all. you really need to check what you write before you post it Perez

    Are you pretending to be ignorant on purpose? Or do you not recieve enough attention and decided to say the most idiotic things to get a rise out of people? For someone who pronotes health this little blig is highly untasteful
    You guess his cool streak had to end someday? And him being against drugs means its over? What are you saying Perez, geez I thought you were smarter than most since youre capitalizng on celebs and all, but your statements in this blog just prove other wise
    You're either actually ignorant or just playing the naive role cause you think its what people like to hear, but youre wrong, add some intellect or respect when speaking on such subjects, otherwise its just a joke…

    Only because pot can make you think outside the box, which religion fears the most.

    There's a difference between legalization and medicinal use…a big difference. I am not sure he is anti medicinal marijuana in his statements.

    wtf dude, marihuana is not the only existing drug, and while marihuana might be used by some people for medical reasons, the cartels aren't majorly profiting off that alone.
    cartels in Mexico are profiting off other drugs, as well as extortion and human trafficking.
    legalizing weed isn't gonna "resolve" shit for countries facing all these issues from the cartels, and since when does he have to be ok with legalization to be cool? he's done so much to adjust the Catholic Church to recent times in the short time he has been pope it's unbelievable..

    i'm amazed that people still think that marijuana is a dangerous drug.
