At a drug enforcement conference in Rome, Pope Francis condemned the current trend of marijuana legalization in different parts of the world.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church said legalizing marijuana “won’t bring any positive results,” and that the motive for legalizing the drug was “highly questionable,”  The Washington Times reports.

The 77-year-old pontiff’s comments come just as Uruguay approved the selling of marijuana cigarettes in pharmacies and the legalization of recreational marijuana use in Washington and Colorado.

    Yet he’s not decrying the legalization of alcohol and tobacco?? Alcohol and tobacco that can cause numerous types of cancer, heart diseases, stroke, liver/kidney/heart damage, vascular diseases….and so much more. Plus there are more deaths caused by drunk driving than marijuana driving. Marijuana as far as i am concerned is safer than alcohol and tobacco! Tell me what health danger marijuana possess? Apart from brief hallucination, what else? How does it harm anybody. In addition it is a tremendous pain relief for cancer patients and others with chronic debilitating diseases. I rather see people high and happy off marijuana than see so many patients dying daily from tobacco and heavy alcohol use.

    Marijuana is much safer! It calms the nerves and is way much better to alcohol…..
