William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language so it should come as no surprise to you that he was most likely a stoner according to National Geographic.

A study of several 17th-century smoking pipes, including a number found in the garden of Shakespeare’s home in England, has revealed traces of cannabis, according to South African scientists.

The South African Police Services Forensic Science Laboratory in Pretoria analyzed the stems and bowls of 24 clay pipes and found traces of tobacco, suggestive evidence of cannabis—and mysteriously, two of the pipes showed signs of what looks like cocaine.

The results of the study have been published in the South African Journal of Science.

The analysis was made after a South African scientist had a hunch that reference to the “noted weed” in one of Shakespeares sonnets may have been the bard’s way of extolling the effects of cannabis.

Some of the most creative, influential and just downright cool ass people in history have been stoners.  LEGALIZE IT ALREADY.
