- Historic drug paraphernalia found next to 7lbs of other gold items in Russia
- Discovery made when construction workers began installing power lines
- Experts say thick, black residue found in the vessels comes from cannabis
Archaeologists have uncovered two 2,400-year-old pure gold ‘bongs’ that were used by tribal chiefs to smoke cannabis during ceremonies.
The historic drug paraphernalia was found alongside 7lbs of other gold items when an area of land was dug up in Russia to make way for power lines.
They items had been buried in a chamber lined with stones before being concealed by a thick layer of clay.
