This story has been circulating the pot smokers news network for a while now. Originally I had decided not to post about it, but then I thought about my readers. Especially those who are dedicated to the site. The one's who got internet just so they could read this blog's update, those who have subscribed to the RSS feed, those who send pictures every once in a while of their new pipes or their smoking sessions. Ok, so maybe those people don't exist, but still I have to keep up or try, so here's the story.
The Yuezhi, an ancient Caucasian people, seem to have buried one of their shamans with a whopping 789 grams or 28 ounces of high-potency pot 2,700 years ago.
"It was common practice in burials to provide materials needed for the afterlife," lead author Ethan B. Russo, a practicing neurologist and prominent medicinal-marijuana advocate based in Missoula, Mont., tells the Canadian Press.
The Yuezhi in the first millennium B.C., liked to throw marijuana onto bonfires to induce trancelike states. It's possible the buried shaman followed similar practices.
