This is the oldest known evidence of marijuana from the Kingdom of Judah.

Burned cannabis found at 'holy of holies' shrine in ancient Kingdom of Judah : Read more
May I ask, how can we be certain that the cannabis was burned by the people using the temple and not simply a component of/in the animal dung? Since there are no archaeological records of cannabis use in the area, wouldn't it be just as easy to postulate that the cannabis was transported to the area in the dung itself?

In the Christmas story, indeed, gold, frankincense, and myrrh was brought to the baby Jesus as gifts from the wise men of the East. They are royal treasures for a king. Maybe the cannabis was used to sedate the animal before slaughter. Like today, horse owners will kill his horse that has a broken leg to put him out of misery. That is called mercy.

Aloha. Well that should be the end of calling "marihuana" the devil's weed.
Almost every hippie knew this evidence was coming one day. What the ancients might have called "being in the Holy Spirit" we've called "getting high".
Think of all the innocent people arrested, imprisoned and worse for decades just for wanting to commune with God like in the ancient temples' Holy of Holies.
This is huge news, doubly scientifically proven. It's time for amnesty and making amends where possible to all those wrongly convicted of "marihuana" crimes that weren't crimes at all.
May unexpected blessings come with this great news..

PS. Kaneh Bosem is the Hebrew word for Cannabis hemp. Did you know that strong evidence exists pointing to Cannabis being an important ingredient in the holy anointing oil of Moses and the christening oil of Jesus? See Exodus 30:23. Makes perfect sense. All English language Bibles call it 'fragrant cane', 'sweet cane', 'aromatic cane' or calamus.

Messiah, Christ and Mahdi all translate to the anointed.
Christian is an anointed one.
Jesus Christ translates to I am anointed.
Anti-Christ is against anointing.
So what's anointing? Exactly?
"We believe anointing is a literal thing. Anoint your crown with holy oil and hear the angels sing."

It can be argued that there is no real Bible without Cannabis hemp. This scientific discovery makes that a more likely possibility now. Talk about a Revelation.

All the best to everyone,

"we can assume that the religious altered state of consciousness in this shrine was an important part of the ceremonies that took place here," You may "assume" anything you want. Every contention in this article is speculation. The only "fact" is that cannabis plant material was found at a shrine. The pungent odor of cannabis can make it a type of insense. The psychoactive THC in cannabis was of such a low percentage that it would be unlikely to have any psychoactive effect being openly burned. The quantities and duration would have to be considerable. Cannabis was more likely used as a fiber product along with some other ceremonial items. Pro-marijuana advocates (maybe the authors?) will draw any connection in an attempt to justify and normalize the current psychoactive use of the plant. The fact that there is no mention of using this plant for intoxicating purposes in the historical record speaks volumes about its "importance."

If this is an older Jewish site then others must have used it after the Jews left because excrement is forbidden in the temple. Leviticus 4:11 But the hide of the bull, all its flesh along with its head and its legs, its entrails, and its DUNG – 4:12 all the rest of the bull – he must bring outside the camp to a ceremonially clean place, to the fatty ash pile, and he must burn it on a wood fire; it must be burned on the fatty ash pile.

There was no marijuana in the Holy of Holies. The Shekinah glory is not a drug. Priests and kings were anointed with olive oil.
