While I have no opinion regarding cannabis, I thought I'd address the issue of civil disobedience.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.) In other words, it would be a sin to disobey the law. However if for any reason, there is legislation which prohibits going to church or being a Christian, you ought to disobey those laws because they separate you from God. If we are without Christ we are nothing and we'll perish; remember to be Christian we have to live with Christ.
