5:00 – Can Christians Smoke Pot?
We took a look last week at Canada’s legalization of recreational marijuana last week, and it’s on the ballot here in Michigan in November. If Pot is natural, does that mean we can indulge?

We talk with Bob Troyer, a former US Attorney for the District of Colorado.
