Boston University Professor Claims Jesus Did Pot

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Professor Bennett suggests that Jesus used pot. We still don't know how he managed to make fine chablis wine on command, I hope they figure that out. I have a deep water well and it is too cold to grow grapes here.

From the Guardian:
Jesus as 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.

The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.
Like, keep on trucking, JC! Dude!

Long hair? Check.

Strange eyes with big, big pupils. Check.

Flowing robes. Check.

Hung out at local bars and saloons with gang members. Check.

Liked wine so much he made it out of water magically. Way to go, check.

Harrassed by da man and executed by fascist pigs. Super check.

Still kept on trucking, will return later after he is done hanging out in Heaven, playing a harp and zoning out. Check.

Yes, this sounds pretty rad. Jesus is definitely a counter-culture, wild eyed hater of the rich, demanding everyone join communes and share with each other, whoo hoo. He sounds awfully familiar, like some of my boyfriends. Of course, he was supposed to not be interested in grrrrlz but then, the gay rights movement came out of the whole hippie-pot scene, didn't it, eh?

WWJD? Roll a joint, man. Take a toke and don't bogart that joint, my friend. Sigh.

Wow. Psychadelic city.
