Drug testing Shakespeare

Anthropologist Francis Thackeray believes William Shakespeare was a pothead -- really -- and hopes to exhume the bard for drug tests. Thackeray's petition for exhumation has been made to the Church of England, based on his research done over the past ten years.

In his study, Thackeray charged that Shakespeare was a regular cannabis smoker, based on forensic studies of 24 pipes discovered in the playwright's garden. Thus far, the Church of England has denied that requests have been made to exhume the body.
