Is the use of cannabis discouraged in satanism? 
Anna Jun 6 '18
Why should anything be discouraged or encouraged? You do what you feel is right for you and accept the consequences. From what I remember, the Church of Satan condemns the use of drugs mainly for PR reasons. On the other hand, they have no means of controlling their own members to that extent. It's just a nod to the general audience: "Look, we are a respectable, decent and prestigious organization. No junkies allowed."

The key phrase here is "Indulgence not compulsion". You must study these tenets as if they are commandments. Then apply them religiously. Sea horses. 

It is worth noting that if it is in an area (state, country, or municipality) that allows for its legal use it is ok. Satanists are law abiding after all.

Most importantly, it must be cosigned by authority first.

I know the church of satan reccomends everyone follows the laws of their government. but a lot of organizations say it's up to the individual. my advice would be to do what is best for you. if you feel marijuana interferes with your life in a negative way don't do it. if you can use marijuana and have some sort of positive results (relief from pain anxiety, muscle spasms ect) without legal ramifications than why not? personally I do not use marijuana because I turn into a lazy fat hog when I use it. I have a 5 year old son so I'm not going to be a good mother if I'm sitting on the couch eating hohos and laughing at adult cartoons all day.

Fatuous statements do not necessarily come off as intended. 

Fun Fact: The super fundamentalist Christian subgroup called Rastafarians consider ganja sacramental. It grew from some dead ethiopian king's (because they were all kings) grave so they consider it their prophet's final gift, allegedly.  They also listen to the verse in Leviticus that says you don't ever cut your hair, as opposed to the other one in Deuteronomy that says you should cut your hair.

Thanks, I appreciate all the feedback. I am pretty new to the scene.

No actually according to the satanic bible do whatever makes you happy and doesn't involve any unwilling participants. The use of cannabis is not bad. Cannabis is a natural occurrence and helpful for so many things. I am a cannabis advocate so feel free to hit me up with any questions.

Quote from AK

It only says this in the contexts of Satanic Sex and Sacrifice. 

Assuming we take Lavey's Satanism to be the authoritative source regarding what Satanism is, it should be noted that LaVey's Satanism was, and in many ways still is, a counter-point to all things hippy and new-age. The tone of the The Satanic Witch is especially derisive of the very notion of chemically induced consciousness expansion - a topic mentioned briefly in the Satanic Bible.

Eisegesis of the Satanic Bible aside, the stance of the C/S (Church of Satan) in regards to cannabis use can be found here: It unequivocally condemns it precisely because it has nothing at all to gain and everything to lose by condoning it. As your own god, it is implied that you are capable of making your own decisions and are free to ignore the advice of others at your own peril. 

Of course, I still have to question exactly how satanic a person can really be who needs the approval of a higher authority to determine what is and is not acceptable to indulge in.

again, I am fairly new to the scene. I was a tad confused because if I am my own god, then why can I not make my own rules. But there seemed to be a strong disdain for substance use.

also in regards to severe and persistent mental illness, cannabis helps and has fewer side-effects than anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers. so gain..

Smoking cannabis you won't have problems with Satanism. You will have problem with the police. (Yeah, rocknrollsmartasses, I've stolen Keith Richards).

If you're a mature & responsible adult there is no reason against smoking it. If you seek purity of the body & mind thru abstinence then you're better off becoming a monk. I personally have a "spiritual" relationship with marijuana. I use it for meditation, anxiety, clarity of mind too, as my natural mental state is chaotic & so many thoughts it sounds like a beehive.
