Hi Goat and welcome to Talk Jesus.
Let's look at something here. What's more important, tax dollars or society's health and well being? Dollars are replaceable and not to mention, they are there to be used for exchange (products, services, and yes "fights" against things whether good or bad)
So, GOD created everything in the world. But, its the purpose/use of each thing that matters. Is it being used for a good intended purpose? GOD created steel and poweder and so on. Is it good to make guns to kill people? (I'm not talking about self defense either but murder). No, it is not. Opium is a natural plant. But, they do this and do that and suddenly you got a deadly drug. Is it ok? No.
1 Corinthians 6:20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
1 Corinthians 6:12
12"Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be mastered by anything.
2 Peter 2:19
19They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.
Romans 13:1-4 (regarding obey laws, illegal drug use for example)
1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
