Scientists believe they have discovered the world’s oldest marijuana stash in an ancient grave in China‘s Gobi Desert, the Discovery Channel is reporting.

The 2,700-year-old grave had about two pounds of marijuana in it, along with the remains of what scientists believe was a shaman.


The scientists immediately recognized the stash as marijuana because the grave also held a 2,700-year-old bag of Doritos and an ancient tie-dyed T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Grateful Dead.” Scientists are debating the meaning of the words.
