Noel “Bongo First” Joseph alleged that the church criticizes the use of marijuana but often ignores the scourge of alcohol.
He said several denominations introduce alcohol to young people in the form of communion wine but yet they decry the use of weed.
when you confirmed, ah wine de furst ting dem give yah deh in church. How dem gine tell me that cannabis is a gateway drug,” he questioned.
Joseph was speaking at Wednesday evening at forum on marijuana which was organised by the National Youth Ambassador Corps.
However, Bishop Ewing Dorsette of the Church of God of Prophecy, said the Church is not to be blamed for the iuse of alcohol.
“Even though some use alcoholic wine for communion, that is not a daily thing, that is not in a bulk, it is few spoonfuls the most,” he countered.
