Oh no it isn't. Not in the Asian's Vitex negundo var. cannabinifolia

Even the common Vitex (agnus-castus) is regularly mistaken for marijuana but this one is even creepier. Vitex are fast growing deciduous shrubs/trees that take drought, full sun, don't have issues, and attract butterflies. Sound perfect? Well, the leaves have a kind of pharmaceutical smell that I find unpleasant. So I don't smell them. Good plants for hot summer gardens.
