Is it unconstitutional to federally ban Jews and Christians from using marijuana?


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.
