According to the archaeologists, a black residue was found inside the pure gold objects, which was later tested to be a mix of cannabis and opium. Historians believe that the ancient Gatorade bottles belonged to the Scythians, a group that ruled Eastern Europe and Asia for a good thousand years or so. It’s believed that warriors would smoke cannabis before launching into battle in an attempt to gain a better state of mind and become more focused in attacking the opposition, compared to the dragon in the sky from your opium hallucinations.
