    I can't believe marijuana has been around for so long. Of course, findings such as this one are speculative, at best. But it's always interesting to find out "what may have happened." It also seems like there are marijuana historians. I never thought about such a specialization. Extremely interesting.

    The title of that article is a bit too sensational IMHO.

    The cords for which the ancient "corded ware" (jōmon doki) of the Japanese archipelago has been named were apparently made most commonly from Cannabis fibers, or at least they seem to have been so during the earliest phase of that culture ("Incipient Jōmon"), which is more than twice the age of the Yamna culture of the Pontic–Caspian steppe.

    The people of the Yamna culture may have popularized a certain social or ritual use of cannabis throughout their broad zone of influence in Eurasia, but they certainly are not responsible for the earliest intensive use of the plant by humans, and the plant appears to have been widely dispersed long before the rise of the Yamna culture.

    Rather shrooms were universal hallucinogens in prehistory.
    And still are good
