Marijuana Has Been Found In Space

Cannabis Found On A Meteorite

Experts from the University of Hawaii, analyzed a meteorite that was found in the desert of Nevada, back in 2010 and they have found THC in it.  The scientists and researchers, were analyzing some parts of the fallen meteorite and they were amazed to find Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is widely known to be found in the marijuana plant.  

James Hun, who is the astrophysicist in charge of this study, said "the discovery of THC on meteorite fragments, will have huge impact on the science of astrobiology.  If chemical substances, that change brain functions and result in alteration in perception, mood, or consciousness in humans, find their origin in outer space, what role then has cometary impacts played on the human species? Or on life on the planet as whole? This discovery ultimately leaves us with more questions than answers. It gives a whole new meaning to the term getting high".

Hun's last sentence, was told to the press with a bit of humor and we certainly had a short laugh. 

Back in 2009. some researchers from the University of Mexico, were also analyzing some meteorite fragments and they also found some THC.  The discovery was cataloged as "controversial" and there wasn't much fuzz made about it. 

At the moment, there is still no answer or proof as to why there was THC on these pieces of meteorite, but scientists and researchers are certainly already working on the case.  It will be very interesting to see what they come up with and what this thing really means.  

Are there marijuana plants growing in other parts of the Universe? Is marijuana or THC an essential thing for living somewhere in space?  Is there plant life outside our planet?  Or did simply someone who smoked some cannabis touch the fragments of meteorite and left some residues behind.  Lot's of questions come to mind and hopefully someone finds the right answer soon.
