Root of Assassin!

I discovered yesterday that the word 'Assassin' comes from the word 'Hashisha'. The term is Arabic in origins where crimes were committed mostly after taking Hashish (yeah, the same old guy who is still around and kicking...looks like we didn't change much since medieval times!)

Dan Browns Angels and Demons gives an accurate explaination of the root of this word...it actually arose during the times of the crusuades,
