Hast thou heard the news? There is new evidence that The Bard may have enjoyed smoking The Herb. Yes, William Shakespeare may have been toking on his pipe with one hand while writing some of the finest, most famous plays of all time with the other. Well, this sheds a whole new light on some of his quotes. Here’s six I came up with off the top of my head…

1. “And here’s some for me: we may call it herb-grace o’ Sundays” -Hamlet

2. “This is a strange repose, to be asleep with eyes wide open” -The Tempest

3. “An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds” -Midsummer Night’s Dream

4. “O thou weed, who art so lovely fair and smell’st so sweet that the sense aches at thee” -Othello

5. “How lush and lusty the grass looks! how green!” -The Tempest

6. “And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.” -As You Like it
