Those who associate marijuana with laziness and sloth wouldn’t know what to make of the Scythians. They were a nomadic tribe who dominated Central Eurasia (Central Asia and Eastern Europe) from approximately 900 BC to 200 BC. Their influence had been felt from China to the northern Black Sea by then.

It is suggested that a king named Koloksai founded a royal dynasty that reigned from the 8th or 7th Century BC. By the 6th Century BC, the Scythians were driven from the Near East but quickly returned with a vengeance. The Second Scythian Kingdom hit its peak by the 4th Century BC. Remarkably, it seems as if this energetic and driven collection of tribes were powered by weed!
