Biblical principles continue to erode in New Mexico…I am heart sick how New Mexico continues to defy God. New Mexico, as is the entire United States, are paying the price for defying the ways of God, the wrath of God. Many do not see it this way because they are not Biblically based, they are blind to the ways of God.
The Scriptures call the mind of the natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4, “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim. 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan.
Here is the latest on legalizing pot in New Mexico: ABQ Journal Report
I have written for years on this subject….the attempt to legalize recreational marijuana is still the wish of some here in New Mexico. I am for medical use of marijuana, but not the recreational use. Denver and the whole state of Colorado is paying a huge price for their decision to legalize recreational marijuana. Read this KOB TV Report
New Mexico has so many awful problems now, child abuse, murder of children, drug abuse, drunk driving, murder, crime, homelessness, corruption…..etc… legalizing the recreational use of marijuana is like pouring gas on a wildfire…..
Here is a post from April 21st of this year……..
I pray that our elected officials in New Mexico pay attention to this and all other states that are thinking of legalizing marijuana. Here in New Mexico Many politicians have pushed this idea in a movement to create cash flow for the state, just as they did to legalize casinos. Casinos and gambling have created so many addictions and financial problems for people, our former Secretary of State, being one of them.
Colorado governor won’t rule out banning marijuana again. Here’s why
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has two facts in front of him: Since 2014 crime has been rising in his state, outstripping the national trend, and since 2014 recreational use of marijuana has been legal. Read the full story

Opinion: Pot is dangerous, not funny — a doctor tells us why
No matter how much fun using marijuana looks like on TV or how many people tell you it’s harmless, remember one thing: unless you have certain medical conditions where the drug may be beneficial, you are better off without it. Read the full story
From Billy Graham:
If something is legal, then that ought to make it OK in the eyes of God, shouldn’t it? It looks like our state is going to legalize marijuana next year, so what’s wrong with enjoying it once in a while, even now?
If something is illegal (which marijuana still is in your state), then it certainly wouldn’t be God’s will for you to break the law, and I sincerely hope you won’t.
But even if it does become legal where you live (as it already has in some states), I strongly urge you not to use that as an excuse to come under the influence of this or any other drug, including alcohol. God gave our minds to us (as well as our bodies and souls), and it is never His will for us to abuse them or allow them to be controlled by anything that alters our judgment or places us (and others) in danger. The Bible bluntly says, “Do not get drunk…. Instead, be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).
The real question, however, is this: What place does God have in your life? Are you honestly seeking His will, no matter what it is — or are you simply seeking His approval for what you already want to do? Be honest with yourself, but most of all, be honest before God. He made you, and life’s greatest joy comes from knowing Him and discovering His will for your life.
Only Christ can truly give you the lasting, inner peace you seek — and that’s why I urge you to turn to Him and ask Him to come into your life. Don’t be deceived by the false promise of drugs. Jesus’ promise is true: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you” (John 14:27).
