BRONZE Age people got high on drugs in cave rituals on the Balearic Islands, a study found.
They believe trippy plants were eaten during “ritualistic ceremonies” led by a shaman.
The hairs had been dyed red and put in boxes decorated with concentric circles, thought to represent eyes, in a cave tomb.
Chemical analysis found atropine and ephedrine in the hair.
Atropine can trigger hallucinations.
Ephedrine is a stimulant and is used to make modern-day crystal meth.
Her study, published in journal Scientific Reports, said the users may have been in a “drug-induced altered state of consciousness”.
