As subtle as a flying brick.

Ancient Stash found in China

The Western press is heralding the discovery of the “world’s oldest marijuana stash” (789 grams) in the tomb of a 2,700-year-old blond-haired, blue-eyed mummy in the Xinjiang region of China. The mummy is believed to be a Nordic-featured Gushi shaman from the Tarim Basin. Scientists conjecture that the cannabis was being saved for use in the afterlife. In actuality, according to the Journal of Experimental Botany, the stash is the oldest pot to be tested for its properties. In 2006, the Chinese press
reported that Chinese scientists had unearthed an older marijuana
“baggy” in a 2,800-year-old Caucasian shaman’s Xinjiang tomb.
