You need look no further than to the traditions of shamans and witch doctors of native tribes to see that herbs and plants are used to invoke the trance state where they commune with the (demonic) spirits. It’s been going on for ages, and still goes on today. That’s how the ‘white man’ learned to smoke tobacco–from Native American rituals. Native peoples also brew or ferment intoxicating beverages. Just because ‘civilized people’ are the ones now doing it, doesn’t mean it is something different.

Smoking weed, using mushrooms (or whatever), smoking tobacco . . . these practices are rooted in witchcraft.
