ISIS Says Legalizing Marijuana Is ‘Deviance’


Campaigners for marijuana legalization just got a vocal new opponent: The Islamic State.

The latest issue of Dabiq, the group’s official magazine, includes ending cannabis prohibition in a list of so-called “deviances” like pornography and feminism:

The deviance carried on until the so-called “Brave New World” of America and Western Europe began legalizing marijuana, bestiality, transgenderism, sodomy, pornography, feminism, and other evils, allowing the Christian pagans of Europe, America, and Australia to break the crime record of every disbelieving nation to precede them in history, including that of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The 82-page production, released on Sunday, also contains a photo a pro-legalization rally, referring to attendees as “pagans.”

The faces of a few of the participants, presumably women, are blurred out with pixels.

Elsewhere in the issue, the writers praise recent terror attacks in Orlando and Nice and criticize Westerners for their “hedonic addictions and heathenish doctrines” which have “enslaved them to false gods including their clergy, their legislatures, and their lusts.”

The magazine also includes an essay titled “Why We Hate You and Why We Fight You” and a profile of Pope Francis headlined “In the Words of the Enemy.”

    Move everyone out of the boring hot ass desert and leave them with a doctrine that says they can bust a nut, wear whatever they want, and enjoy themselves and I can guarantee they won’t have anything to be angry about.

      Like that did a lot of good in USA. Look at our social problems. I doubt you idea will work. Just get a bunch of drunk drug taking pornographers abusing their wives and families and prostituting their woman on the internet with a nation full std teens and disease rampant everywhere. With woman will go down on any man for any reason any time and parade around grocery stores in g-string underwear and see through tops. go down on them and see what std you come up with.

  2. Huh, I didn’t know we had the crime stats for Sodom and Gomorrah. How about that. (BTW, F. Off Isis: nice handle!)

  3. It is bothersome that America’s federal government is in agreement with ISIS on the subject.

    We have no need for these close minded fool’s that are trying to be our morality police!

    ISIS can not be farther from True Islamic Thought. A Muslim, Proud & Pure will never indulge in the drinking of liquid that is fermented from fruit or wheat. To partake in the smoking of hashish is very acceptable. Pornography, although taboo, is questionable. I have seen some very hardcore pornographic scenes come exclusively from Islamic Nations. Sex Sells. Simple as that. As for Feminism? ISIS Is Shit Wrong on that one. Prophet Muhammad’s Wife rode a camel on the same land where women can’t drive cars today. Don’t confuse Saudi Culture with Prophetic Tradition

    If you read the Daesh magazine you will notice they praise Israel and never mention Jewish crime in Palestine or crimes at Muslim’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. This is a tip off that the magazine is from Mossas/CIA and we know that they are providing Daesh, ISIS,ISIL, Al-Qaeda (has new name now) weapons (with Saudi & Gulf state help) and giving Daesh etc. medical care in the occupied Golan Heights. Israeli weapons are routinely found in terrorist hands. They are attacking Syria so Israel & USA can place missile on Iran’s border. Has nothing to do with Islam or Muslims. You cannot find one picture of Daesh saying their daily prayers or going to Mosque to pray five times a day.

  6. Who’s sponsoring ISIS…Big Pharma? Yo…Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi, Merck & Co., Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, Gilead Sciences, Takeda…You have a lousy choice of people backing your congressional pay-off to stop MMJ from becoming legal. Hum, I wonder if Big Pharma should be known as a terrorist group seeing how they are keeping the sick from getting natural medicine?
