"Drugs", The Bible and criminalization


Genesis 1,31 (Creation)
“God looked at everything, he had created: It was very good.”

In this context and the interpretation that nothing of God’s creation is evil but “very good” and serves a purpose even poisonous plants (“…alone the dose makes, that a thing won’t be a poison.” Paracelsus), the criminalization of plant, cacti and mushroom “drugs” can’t be justified in an Abrahamic religion believers moral compass, because creation comes from God and was created for us to use carefully (Genesis 2,15 “God, the Lord, thus took the human and put him into the garden of Eden, therewith he cultivates and takes care [!] of it.”).
