Marijuana is a part of Christianity, Judaism and all others who follow the teachings of Moses. "Moreover, the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, ‘take also for yourself the finest of spices: of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels (12.5 US standard pounds), and of fragrant cinnamon half as much, two hundred and fifty shekels 6.25 lbs.), and of fragrant kaneh (Kaneh-bosem: marijuana) two hundred and fifty shekels (6.25 lbs.), and of cassia five hundred (12.5 lbs.), according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin (6 quarts).” (Exodus 30: 22-25, 1995, New American Standard Bible)

There are two problems with your theory: 1) Marijuana is kaneh-bosem, hemp is not a sweet cane, whereas marijuana is.
2) Everyone inhales incense when they burn it. Furthermore it was not only burned but drenched upon those in the ceremony.
If your sources are correct, so be it. Please note, I was not presenting a theory, but elements to research. One more: Were not these rites to be performed only at the one Temple of the Israelite People where the Ark of the Covenant lies? Not in US!
