Infantile misuse of Biblical texts

This particular abuse of the text was found on the Mandatory Facebook page.

The context of stoning has NOTHING to do with smoking marijuana or any drug that gets you stoned, it is to do with stoning someone to death, the practice of pelting rocks at them until they die, not smoking weed every day till you are in a drug induced high.

It is anachronistic to read back later definitions of words into the biblical text and as far as abuse goes, this is an egregious misuse of the text.

Answering Judaism.
