VATICAN CITY (Worthy News)-- Pope Francis condemned the legalization of recreational drugs, according to USA Today.

Francis told delegates at a drug-enforcement conference in Rome that attempts to legalize recreational drugs were not only highly questionable, but ineffective. Further, providing addicts with drugs doesn't address their problems, but instead surrenders to their addictions.

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

  1. Interesting, because alcohol is a recreational drug, and catholics are all about alcohol.

    It's also interesting because while alcohol is a man made drug, and by the numbers the most dangerous, most abused drug, cannabis is a plant the Lord God created and it's use has been noted back to the time of Pharaoh.

    I have personally used it to get off several dangerous prescription narcotics and their inherent side effects I was prescribed for back injuries and eventually was able to heal enough to start my own business and get off disability.

    Doesn't sound like something the devil has a hand in, but big pharma and it's heroin, yeah, they're choir boys. Wasn't there a prominent catholic who was importing booze during the prohibition, had some famous kids...
