What plant would Jesus be? Hemp: heals the sick, comforts the poor, befriends sinners, saves the world.
From the Guardian
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.
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.
If cannabis turns out to be the safest, most therapeutic substance discovered by humankind, then the prohibitionists are responsible for millions of unnecessary deaths.
Growing, consuming, sharing and selling cannabis is a human right.
I put this together last night, thought it was pretty funny….
The long story is….
One night in San Fransisco twenty five years ago I was at the front of a line of hippies walking up to golden gate park entrance on the Haight (I had organized the entire Haight street into a mini cannabis smoke off at the park) and…
As we were walking to the park we were met by a band of christian evangelicals coming down to “save the hippies”….
As the first young christian “minister” came down the walk and met me, she said (somewhat snottily I should add), “Jesus saves”. She said it like she was throwing holy water on a vampire.
I replied: “Hemp Saves”
I heard the hippies behind me giggle.
As we crashed together, we had a funny little war over words and the phrase “hemp saves” was born.
So was the phrase “Jesus Junkies”
just thought you’d like to know how long I’ve been thinking about this particular meme
