And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. – Genesis 1:29, King James Bible

Constance Johnson, an Oklahoma state Senator and a Democrat, has launched a statewide initiative to legalize marijuana, citing the preceding Bible verse as the grounds for the movement.

„We’re putting forth Genesis 1:29 as the basis of this campaign,“ Johnson said to her supporters at the state capitol Friday according to local News channel KFOR reports.
