Herodotus Vindicated Again – This Time about Cannabis

Herodotus is the gift that keeps on giving. Last time it came to my attention that he’d been vindicated, I posted about it here.

And now it has happened again: “Archaeologists find signs of ritualized cannabis use 2,500 years ago in China.”

Speaking of. In my book The Strange Land, tribal matriarch Zillah includes cannabis in a painkilling cocktail that at one point she needs to give to her grandson, Ki-Ki. I figured I could get away with her having it in her stock of medicines, as the tribe had passed through Central Asia.
