    2,700-year-old Marijuana Stash Found
    By THE CANADIAN PRESS

    OTTAWA -- Researchers say they have located the world's oldest stash of
    marijuana, in a tomb in a remote part of China.

    The cache of cannabis is about 2,700 years old and was clearly
    "cultivated for psychoactive purposes," rather than as fiber for
    clothing or as food, says a research paper in the Journal of
    Experimental Botany.

    The 789 grams of dried cannabis was buried alongside a light-haired,
    blue-eyed Caucasian man, likely a shaman of the Gushi culture, near
    Turpan in northwestern China.

    The extremely dry conditions and alkaline soil acted as preservatives,
    allowing a team of scientists to carefully analyze the stash, which
    still looked green though it had lost its distinctive odour.

    "To our knowledge, these investigations provide the oldest
    documentation of cannabis as a pharmacologically active agent," says
    the newly published paper, whose lead author was American neurologist
    Dr. Ethan B. Russo.

    Remnants of cannabis have been found in ancient Egypt and other sites,
    and the substance has been referred to by authors such as the Greek
    historian Herodotus. But the tomb stash is the oldest so far that
    could be thoroughly tested for its properties.

    The 18 researchers, most of them based in China, subjected the
    cannabis to a battery of tests, including carbon dating and genetic
    analysis. Scientists also tried to germinate 100 of the seeds found in
    the cache, without success.

    The marijuana was found to have a relatively high content of THC, the
    main active ingredient in cannabis, but the sample was too old to
    determine a precise percentage.

    Researchers also could not determine whether the cannabis was smoked
    or ingested, as there were no pipes or other clues in the tomb of the
    shaman, who was about 45 years old.

    The large cache was contained in a leather basket and in a wooden
    bowl, and was likely meant to be used by the shaman in the afterlife.

    Fucking scientists.

    Now if me and my buddies had found that ancient stash?

    Well come on-Any smoker in here would have at least TRIED a couple hits.

    Hell I would have just so I could wait on one of my buddies to be like "Dudeeee.. the other day, I smoked this strawberry kush.. best shit EVER"

    and then I could be like..

    "Yea man? Well the other day I unearthed a 2500 year old pot full of pot. I smoked that shit. It was AWESOME. Also, the initials J.C. were carved on it.. must be the dude it belonged to's initials.. hmm"

    You know they smoked some of that shit. If they said it was 789 grams really it was about 20 pounds and they split up the rest.

    Like aged wine if that were to sell it would probably be some of the most expensive dope ever. ROFL

    Just because I find it funny....

    Man 1: "Yo, how much you pay for that $hit"

    Man 2: "it was mad expensive... like 10K a G"

    Man 1: "D@MN."

    * This is not a true dialog and does not claim to be accurate what so ever. It's a joke.
