Marijuana — a lot of papal bull

God’s latest Main Man on Earth, Argentenian cleric Jorge Mario Bergoglio, absolute ruler of the Vatican City, has The Word on marijuana

Uruguay, Argentina’s closest neighbour, recently gave the official nod of approval to selling marijuana cigarettes — joints/doobies — in drug stores, and recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington.

But Pope Francis, the Catholic Church’s current apologist-cum-mythologist-in-chief, has said NO! to Mary Jane.

According Time mag,he’s, “come out strongly against the legalization of recreational drugs, lending his voice to the debate which is raging from the U.S. to Uruguay and beyond.

He apparently told members of a drug-enforcement conference meeting in Rome that even limited attempts to legalize recreational drugs “are not only highly questionable from a legislative standpoint, but they fail to produce the desired effects.”
