Many conservatives are ready to give up on fighting against the legalization of marijuana. “Hasn’t the war on drugs been a complete failure?” they ask. And libertarians turn this surrender into a virtue: “People should be free to do what they want, as long as they’re not hurting anyone.” But as Christians, we must be ready to swim against the tide even when it’s no longer cool. (And no, we don’t do it by making unsubstantiated claims about Reefer Madness.)

In Devoured by Cannabis, Douglas Wilson establishes from Scripture that marijuana usage is not comparable to alcohol consumption or to smoking cigarettes, and demonstrates that getting stoned is not an option for believers. Then he explains why keeping marijuana illegal is not a pointless battle but an important cultural watershed for every citizen. When we are deciding which laws are best, wisdom considers not just individual license but also which industries, penalties, and incentives we are putting in place. Liberty for potheads means tyranny for everyone, including the smokers enslaved by the drug.

Doug Wilson--Devoured By Cannabis

Was great to read; quick, easy reading, like reading some of Doug's blog posts. It was so good and succinct that I have already lent the book to some friends.

Good short read!

Pastor Doug brought out some interesting viewpoints that I hadn't yet though of. He writes in a way that is easy to read and makes you laugh.

Changed the way I think, for the better

This recalibrated my thinking on marijuana, alcohol, coffee, and a host of other things. Pastor Wilson's case is laid out biblically and precisely. It's directed at one substance, but there are worldview matters addressed throughout. Bravo and thank you!

"Devoured by Cannabis" by Doug Wilson Review

I enjoyed the book of very much. As always, Doug Wilson raises a lot of good points, and does so in an entertaining way that keeps the reader's attention! I can't say I agree with everything in the book ( like "marijuana alters the mind unlike alcohol, tobacco,and nicotine") but I will say it was still an otherwise informative read and it's good that he's bringing awareness to what can happen with marijuana abuse. Even though marijuana is one of the few vices that I have no experience with myself I one of my cousins who used to be addicted told me he had to quit his job and literally lay in bed for two weeks straight to break free of his addiction. Also a co-worker ive known for 10 years at the UPS warehouse has had a number done on him over the years by marijuana. Every day he comes in to work extremely hot headed and aggressively Moody at the beginning of the shift until after break (when hes smoked a joint or 2)then he's a completely different person and very pleasant one to be around. Doug Wilson should write a similar book based on the effects of "adderall" and potential side effects and dangers that come with the use and abuse of it.

Important Book

Loved the practical and biblical approach!

A small book easy to read and took 3-4 sittings to finish. Exactly what I was looking for. It was kind Providence that a friend referred me the title after learning I was having cannabis discussions with an opposing minded co-worker.
Douglas Wilson has a clear,biblical black and white perspective on important matters like this which in times like this is a huge gift.

Great book

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I was moving from a state where pot is still illegal, to a state where it is not. I had concerns as a believer and wanted to learn what Wilson had to say on the issue. I wanted to be better prepared to face the conversation within the church, if needed.

Great read!

With the world relaxing significantly in its view of pot, it's good to hear a biblical perspective on it.
