A South African anthropologist has requested to open the grave of William Shakespeare to see if he can demystify the cause of the English dramatist’s death—as well as determine whether or not marijuana was his muse.

I think the statute of limitations on the use of cannabis in Elizabethan England may be up at this point. Besides I think being the author of Hamlet could easily be considered community service.
