The recent comments on my latest poem have led me to want to know more about how you feel regarding this topic. My own personal opinion is that; although, it's not for me you go right ahead, which amazes many of my friends. I have the offer to get my license; they will grow my pot, sell it to the dispensary, and give me my share of the cash, which would be about $30,000.00 a year. That’s a hard offer to pass on. I invest $200.00, have nothing more to do with it, and then collect my $30,000.00. So why won't I?
I trust in the Lord to provide my needs and he does a very good job of it! Simple as that! Could I use the extra cash, who couldn't. But, would it affect this amazing Karma I have going on in my life. Who knows? That’s a chance I'm not willing to take for any amount of money. I have a beautiful life, a beautiful wife, beautiful children, and a beautiful home, all by the grace of God. My wealth is no longer measured by the dollar; it's measured by faith. I think accepting that deal would show a lack of faith on my part. I think that would be taking my life out of the Lord's hands and placing it back in mine. Past experiences prove when I take my life in my own hands it all goes horribly bad in a hurry. Even though my friends can't quite grasp my theology they see my point! Over the last seven-years my Karma has been impeccable in every sense of the word. Everything I try comes out perfectly as planned, because, it's not my plan it's the Lords.
Make no mistake I write for the glory of God. For 42-years I never thought I would write a poem. Never had any desire to write or read poetry. Then I prayed and was struck by lightening, ever since I am a poet. I don't know if anyone can really grasp how amazing that truly is. Those who have known me for years certainly realize how amazing it is. I went from stabbing people one day to writing poetry the next.
Anyhow, after Church I'll be posting my contest. BTW, a couple of my good friends at Church are Medical Marijuana users. I personally sit atop the fence on the subject. I don't want it my life but don't mind if you want it in yours. Pro or con tell me how you feel!
PS. I have noticed some concern that I'm contemplating getting involved in this. Let me make it clear, I will never in my life get involved in ANY drug activity ever again, in any aspect. That offer was made some years ago and has long since been turned down with no ifs, ands, or buts. Don't trip I have no desire for anything other than my Lord, children, wife, friends, furthering my writing abilities, and my education. Trust and believe I know the bad side of it all, I basically just wish to know how you guys feel regarding this issue. having said this, I do appreciate the concern.
