Interesting...

I was looking up assassins in the encyclopedia and I only found assassination, but I read a little information that I thought was worth sharing.

The word assassination comes from the word assassins or hashshashin (hemp-eaters), a band of Muslims in Persia and Asia Minor in the 1100's. They smoked a drug called hashish, which is made from the hemp plan, and killed their enemies while under its influence.
Interesting indeed.
