What are You Giving up for Lent – Maybe Marijuana?
Today, The Pablo Show talked about Lent (it’s Ash Wednesday, after all) and what some people are giving up in observance.
In recent news, D.C. is now one step closer to decriminalizing marijuana. Anyone caught with less than an ounce of marijuana will avoid jail time and be given a minimal fine instead.
Is there really a connection with Lent and decriminalizing marijuana? Yes… if you give up smoking weed for the next 40 days.
I am not sure there are many Christians admitting to smoking weed, then giving it up for 40 days, but we did hear from a mom who has tried to get her 17-year-old to stop smoking it for awhile.
Today, she called asking for help from The Pablo Show. There may or may not be a drug test involved in a few weeks.
