Jesus was a pot head

"Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings."

It appeared in High Times, so it must be true.

What BS. All these groups claiming Jesus as one of their own, not what he really was -- a Republican.

Only very vaguely relevant, but I recall reading somewhere that the stuff they burn in the thing that they swing around in Catholic churches (I'm not overly familiar with the technical terms :) has compounds related to THC in it and that it helps to induce a "religious" state of mind...

For a Catholic Mass (or Orthodox), the incense is placed in a thurible and that is inside the censer which is then swung in a rhythm depending upon which part of the Mass its used.

The recipe varies but usually contains frankincense and myrrh.

The Disciples are frequently identified as being high on something if it isn't cannibis its mushrooms. The same lack of evidence for any of it is usually enough to convince someone of its existence.

This isn't really that different to the idiot intending to take the Vatican to court to have them state that Christ didn't exist.

Yeah, but it was in High Times magazine, who needs evidence with credentials like that?

Though truth be told, He'd probably vote for Kucinich.

I was talking with a friend of mine... a conservative talk show host about politics and he mentioned "you seem to have a rather large Libertarian streak" and I described myself as a "Christian Libertarian".

His Response:

"Does that mean you ask yourself 'What Would Jesus Toke?'"
