Though it is still a subject that Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and the rest of the Ancient Aliens probably still won’t tough even with a 10-foot pole, is there any credence to the “rumors” that Jesus of Nazareth's marijuana use?

The implication that Jesus of Nazareth might have used marijuana probably started on that 1988 move The Last Temptation of Christ where John the Baptists’ “band of hippy followers” seem to appear to be strung out on marijuana – and don’t forget that since the years after Bob Marley’s June 7, 1980 Crystal Palace Water Contert, it seems that every self-styled Rastafarian “high-priest” who’s ever been to that iconic concert date had since made sacrosance that John the Baptist was one of the founding fathers of Rastafarianism and did indeed taught Jesus Christ to use marijuana besides the banks of the Jordan River in preparation of the “Baptism” of the iconic Nazarene over 2,000 years ago.
Though the popularity of The Last Temptation of Christ was primarily due to iconic actor Robert De Niro turing down the role of Jesus Christ (a role that eventually went to Willem Dafoe) in which in an interview, De Niro jokingly said “Jesus didn’t speak with a Brooklyn accent”, it seems that this move is the primary “evidence” oft used to imply that Jesus Christ smoked marijuana. But is is the only oft used proof to lend the credence that Jesus of Nazareth used cannablis? Well, it does make for a very interesting World 440 celebration this 2014.
Ever since the legalization of medical marijuana in some parts of the United States and some more liberal parts of the rest of the world, many “medical marijuana experts” cite as proof the healing effects of marijuana the apparent “miraculous” resurrection of Jesus Christ after the Crucifixion – not to mention the serious physical castigation under Pontius Pilate's and the top Jewish Pharisee’s orders done before the Crucifixion.
