PC Zone summed it up by sauing "in the days that LucasArts could do no wrong, they did wrong" (or something to that effect). Now it's practically an advantage of the game, that you could play it through in one sitting if you wanted to. But then it is a lot cheaper to buy now.
I believe it was cut because Ben's dream/hallucination/vision-quest was actually going to be triggered by him ingesting peyote, and the LEC bigwigs feared they would be seen as condoning drug use.

Cue the Mojo LSD jokes in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
