A recent archaeological study suggest that early humans have known about weed, as far back as 10,000 years ago.
According to The Times, scientists from the German Archaeological Institute have published a report showing evidence that humans have been using marijuana since Europe’s glaciers began their final retreat 10,000 years ago.
This was the Stone Age, which could likely be renamed the “Stoned Age”.
Despite the discovery, the marijuana plant wasn’t used to smoke. Instead, cavemen tribes would pick the seeds for nutritional supplements and used the hemp fibers for clothing.
In comparison, humans didn’t start drinking alcohol until about 3,000 years after discovering marijuana.
