Old Habits

Scientists have found a new tomb in a remote area of China called Xinjiang. Within the tomb they found a bag of marijuana which is dated back almost 2,700 years. The stash was found near the body of a supposed shaman, a figure of high importance at the time. The weed along with other things were supposedly buried with the man to help in the after life. Artifacts found within the tomb hinted that the weed was used for psychoactive purposes. It was preserved due to the harsh dry condition and alkaline soil, it even had some green to its colour when it was found. Cool shit eh ?....wonder if they matched up back than.
