The Klezmatics do a Jiddish song called Mizmor shir lehanef (Reefer Song. It translates as follows:

Shabbos brings Jews rest, repose equilibrium. every morning is Shabbos for me-am I really so religious? I'm really so religious. When I light up a spliff and start to do allright, feel real good.

Funfe is the Yiddish word for what's called a reefer in English. The Maggid of Mezz Mezritch says "It's GodS' best medium of consolation." It causes the Shekhina to be spread out upon whoever's smoking. It's a tikkun for the spirit.

Smoke a spliff-cannabis

I'll praise the Lord, sing to God the creator of the world A song of coughing because he has given every generation A herb which represents the earthly Wild Ox. I sing, I touch the sky and, excuse me, go a little bit farther.
