The Stoned Siberian
Today I learned they just discovered that breast cancer may have killed her and that the marijuana found in her pouch was possibly used to ease her symptoms. (National Geographic detailed much of what was found with her, but no mention of the pot, which possibly they hadn't examined yet.)
Frankly, her tattoo has fared better than mine over the years, but now I've adopted a new appreciation for it as a symbol of the proven power of ancient plant medicine. Here's hoping today's system will accept the science on medicinal marijuana and catch up to the past sooner than later.
