Religion, Culture and Cannabis

Religiosity is an important predictor of cannabis use, according to the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy and the Department of Sociology at Florida State University. Jonathan Merritt, a well known Christian author on religion, culture and politics, wrote an article for the New York Times on Christianity and cannabis. Merritt, who grew up in an evangelical Christian minister’s household, described how he spent most of his life believing that cannabis, “was just one more sinful tool that the devil used to shred America’s moral fabric.”
