Would Jesus Dance With Mary Jane?

Updated on December 18, 2012

What Would Jesus Do If He Had A Joint?

Let us ponder for a bit and open our imaginations to the realm of possibilities. Think, if you will, about Jesus standing before a delicate yet lush green and blooming full cannabis plant. Would He know what it is? Yes, He knows all. Would He know it to be good? Yes, for all things God made, He saw as good…perfect. (Gen 1:12 and Gen 1:29-31) So what would Jesus do if He had pot?

Because Jesus knows all, he will cup a red haired bud in his hands, and see the future where people sin with abuse, not recognizing the sin of gluttony. He will sorrow over the plant God gave and the neglect of its given talent. Everything is given talent and we are to use those talents to serve the Father. This plant’s intent is for healing and passage and not gluttony. (Prov 23:20-21)

Standing back a bit and observing the bush as a whole, Jesus would kneel and begin to pray to God to forgive those who are ignorant and allow them to see the light of this creation known as cannabis. He would ask God to teach the People of this plant’s joys and sorrows, so they may know.

Jesus understands the incense offering, declared by the Father and instructed to Moses, as fit and good. (Ex 30:23) He knows that canna is word for reed and bus for aromatic and sweet cane to be cannabis. In healing the People, Jesus would remember using the oils that God taught and how this “Mary Jane” stood among them.

In the churches of His time, prayer was aided with the burning of these oils and incense. Jesus knew this was to free the mind and allow the Holy Spirit to be revealed. He was also aware that cannabis was a powerful and sacred plant.

So if Jesus stood on the steps of Washington DC today, with say a quarter of an ounce of the sweet healing herb, what would he do? Remembering the day, Jesus stood in the Synagogue and healed people on the Sabbath against the Church’s Rule of the time, he would now stand up.

Soon the People would gather around and know who He is. He would multiply that quarter like he did the fish and He would feed the people with the Holy Spirit. He would bathe them in the smoke of the burning cannabis and rapture their minds with the Word, and teaching the difference between gluttony and respect. If some of the DC politician were to mingle in the crowd, it might be possible for Jesus and Mary Jane to save the world! (Rev: 5: 8) “…and they were holding golden bowls full of incense which are the prayers of the saint”. What would Jesus do if he had pot?

      But it comes from the people who abuse it that makes it illegal. Tabbacco is also scared but not when it is used as an everyday nothing.

      It is argued today among the theologians and scholars that sweet cane and a few other names could very well be cannabis, but certainly not in the form it is today...hybrid.

      Jesus knew about cannibis. It was grown extensively throughout the middle east. It was used for rope and cloth. It's properties have been known for thousands of years, and the Egyptians and Romans also used it. Not one word is spoken about hemp in the bible, unless you go back to the "every herb bearing seed" statement. It was our first birthday present. It's absence in the bible is remarkable, given it's widespread use. All other forms of intoxication popular at the time are expounded on. Pot is not.
