As two U.S. states have legalized the use of recreational marijuana, one woman, a preacher’s daughter, said in a recent interview that the plant-derived drug is a “gift from God.”

Aimee Curry, a 39-year-old daughter of a minister, swears by marijuana’s ability to heal pain. The woman told CNN in a recent interview that although her father would disagree with her use of the recreational drug, she believes it is a “gift from God” due to its ability to relieve the painful and lasting back spasms she experiences as a result of a 1992 car accident that nearly killed her.

Curry told CNN recently that when she was first presented with marijuana by a friend, she denied it, saying, “I can’t do that, it’s bad,” but she was quickly convinced to take her first puff. Since her first inhale, Curry has become pro-marijuana.

“It states in the Bible not to abuse a drug, it doesn’t say you can’t use it,” Curry told the media outlet. “If you ask me, cannabis is a gift from God.” Although Curry says she now respects her father’s wishes and stays away from the drug, she may be prepared to begin smoking again if her back pain returns.

Some evangelical leaders have taken a stance on marijuana since it has become legalized for recreational use in some states, including Colorado and Washington.

Theologian John Piper wrote on his Desiring God ministry website earlier in January that Christians should stay away from marijuana for two biblical reasons: the body is a temple, and the mind in invaluable.

Piper wrote that if he were raising kids again, he would tell them, in regards to smoking and other questionable behavior: “Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. You are not your own. You were bought with Jesus’s blood. Ask, Is this making Jesus look like the treasure he is?”

“I would ask this about smoking, about drunkenness, about recreational marijuana, about sedentary indolence, about overeating, about banal TV watching, and lots of other things.” Piper adds that marijuana, in a similar way to drunkenness, “leads away from the kind of sober-mindedness and self-control that is essential in using the mind for the glory of God.”

Greg Stier, president of Dare 2 Share Ministries and a guest columnist for The Christian Post, recently gave parents and specifically teens three reasons why they should say “no” to marijuana. The first reason is that although casual marijuana use will likely “trickle down” to teenagers in states where it is recreationally legal, it is technically not legal for residents under 21 years of age.

Stier also writes that teenagers should avoid the temptation to smoke marijuana because it “violates the principle behind Ephesians 5:18,” which states, “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.”

“When we are full of liquor the alcohol controls us. When we are full of cannabis the chemical ‘THC’ controls us. When we are full of the Holy Spirit God controls us,” Stier, who works with Christian youth through his Dare 2 Share Ministries, wrote. The ministry president said that teens should avoid marijuana because “it contradicts the ‘self-controlled’ and ‘upright’ lives that should set them apart from their peers.”

“We are called to be peculiar, different, even ‘weird’ for the sake of Christ. This peculiarity flows from the choices that we make that swim against the tide of a compromised culture. These choices flow from a clear head and a pure heart which result in a peculiar [yet compelling] lifestyle,” Stier stated.
