Was Jesus a Stoner?
"JESUS used cannabis and was an early champion of its medicinal properties, a growing consensus of experts agree.
Cannabis historian, author and journalist David Bienenstock is one who believes cannabis oil even explains the `miracles` attributed to Jesus.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, he said: `Historical records show that cannabis was widely available at the time - they would`ve known how to grow it and exploit its medicinal properties.`
`There is nothing different in the efficacious cannabis oil used today that wouldn`t have been available to people in Jesus` time - it`s simply a matter of concentrating the cannabis into the oil and absorbing it through the skin.``"
The Daily Star
According to the Daily Star Jesus Christ was a stoner, granted the Daily Star is a British tabloid and we shouldn`t accept everything they print as Gospel, but it makes a lot of sense to me.
David Bienenstock is a cannabis historian and one of the leading proponents of the thesis that Jesus was an early champion of its medicinal properties.
I`m not a cannabis historian or a renowned stoner like Snoop Dogg, but the Jesus depicted in history books and Bibles looks like the quintessential stoner. Think about it, he wears sandals, a long flowing robe, and has long hair, the only thing missing is flowers in his hair.
I wouldn`t go as far as Bienenstock and claim that Jesus Christ`s miracles can be attributed to the medicinal properties of the holy weed, but why would the 12 apostles follow him around everywhere if he wasn`t sharing his heavenly stash with them?
Jesus had a peaceful temperament, and traveled about spreading good vibes, that aptly describes the typical pot user.
I would highly recommend that white evangelicals shill the hell out, and smoke a little weed, it might make them more like Jesus.
I hope nobody thinks this lighthearted essay is sacrilegious, I`m not denying the divinity of Jesus, I`m just saying that Jesus was a really cool dude who probably smoked reefer.
