Default Did Jesus smoke weed?



I have read similar information over and over again of the use of mushrooms and cannabis in ancient judaism. Mushrooms were almost definately used by high priests in Judaism and shown by their dress and the semitic practices of the day. Cannabis was widely grown and a common intoxicate of the region during Christs teachings.

Just read and give me your opinions.

I searched scholarly articles for cannabis and Hebrew, and New Testament, and Jesus and it appears that nothing has been done on the topic.

I don't know how it's possible for the writer to claim that the ancient Hebrews knew about cannabis or used it in their annointing oil or rituals.

Jesus preached against getting drunk, so I don't know why he would condone the use of a plant that would cause people to lose their senses, hallucinate, etc. Also, Jesus didn't need plants to heal people. All he had to to was put his hands on someone, and they would be healed. Anyhow, this seems awfully far-fetched to me.

Getting drunk and drinking are too different things. Smoking weed and getting retarded are too different things and jesus drank for sure, but i will find some texts.

The scriptures that they quote are entirely taken out of context.

Can cannabis actually grow in a desert?

Let's take an honest look at the places where we would find evidence or authority for it's use, and then make a determination.

1) Biblical evidence: There is nothing in the Bible, Tora or other Jewish/Christian texts that supports, either through direct command, example or necessary inference, that Marijuana, Mushrooms or any other plant or herb was used for purposes of hallucinating, getting high, etc.

2) Archeological evidence: There is no physical evidence or scientific research done to support the claim that the people in this area used Marijuana, Mushrooms or any other plant or herb for the purpose of hallucinating, getting high, etc.

The logical conclusion therefore, since there is literally no evidence to suggest otherwise, is that these people did not use these plants and herbs for that purpose, or even that they used them at all.

*On a similar note however, I think that Puff the Magic Dragon is living in northern New Jersey and is addicted to heroin. I have no proof of it, but I did read it on the internet, so it must be true.

Try the botanical angle and look up cannabis on Wikipedia.

"Cannabis" apparently has Semitic roots. That assumes the material on Wiki is correct, of course.
