“To toke, or not to toke. That is the question.”

Did you know that scientists found 400-year-old pipes in Shakespeare’s garden outside his home in Stratford-upon-Avon. Out of the 24 pipes they found, eight of them contained traces of cannabis. As it turns out, people have been growing cannabis for more than 12,000 years, making it one of humanity’s oldest crops. It can be used in construction, clothing, and even plastic. And the best part is that all of these options are eco-friendly.
