I don't know about God, but I think that because a drug has the potential of abuse is not sufficient reason to prohibit its use therapeutically. However, I think it is important to demonstrate that such a drug is efficacious in treating illness and to control its availability as is done with other prescription drugs. I guess it depends on how one uses an object that defines its appropriateness. Using a ram's horn to produce and effect is not in itself a sin. For example, one can blow through it and produce a noise that communicates meaning to others. However, one can also use it as a blunt instrument weapon to kill. I'm sure God knew this in advance of His allowing people to use it as a tool.
