Sadhus and Marijuana

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.[4] The drug is used in excess during the celebration of Shivaratri."
