    I have read through the Bible many times, and really, nothing indicated anything more than alcohol use. That is not to say people would not have smoked it had it even grown in the area, which is a topic better left to experts. I will say this however, I'm pretty sure there were no zig zags back then, and a papyrus doobie would have been large and unwieldy. Bongs would have been made from clay. What they probably did was feed it to their livestock -- which would explain talking donkeys..

      They knew how to blow glass back then. There are roads from ancient Rome still in good shape and it seems like everyone thinks all people back then were idiots. Personally I think there are more idiots alive per capita today than yesterday.

    no none that I seen. I really do not think there was such a thing back in those days.

    I never even read of anyone smoking cigarettes.

    Then again if so would it have been of mention, probably not. But then again they may have not really known what they were smoking or what to do with it.

    But no I really dont believe so

    Yes, there is evidence of marijuana usage and the terminology used was " flax". Which was used for medicinal purposes.

      I have read this entire article, and can find no evidence that flax shares anything in common with marijuana other than it's fibrous nature. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flax#History
