Yeah, I saw that in the news today. Interesting. I bet we smoked it long before that though. I think humans are prone to getting high on weed, and the effects are the results of our ancestors getting high on it. There was no DEA back in 500 BCE.

My ancestral male DNA comes from Caucasian tribes from western Asia/Siberia 25,000 plus years ago in the R1b haplogroup. They migrated south through what are now west China and Kazakhstan about 15,000 years ago. What became the M269 clade migrated across southeast Asia and then my U106 sub clade split off and moved northwest through Europe to Holland and England during the bronze age. My more recent ancestors came to north America from England and Holland starting in the early 17th century. My line stayed on the east coast until my parents moved from New York state to the west coast of the US before I was born. So if I keep going west, I do not have far to get back to where my DNA started over 25,000 years ago. I think my ancestors smoked weed along the way. Cannabis was there, my clade was there... lets light one up brother!
