So I am back from the club where I danced with my co-workers (yeah, I need to start getting out on my own without waiting for someone to invite me. I know), and watching this video on youtube about deities
This guy is a Sadhu, and appereantly, Sadhus use marijuana in their progress to spiritual englightenment. fascinating stuff that I wanted to share...
"A popular characteristic of Sadhu ritualism is their utilization of marijuana (known as charrus) as a form of a eucharist in line with their worship of Shiva who was believed to have an adoration or affinity for the leaves of the plant. The drug is used in excess during the celebration of Shivaratri."
