Its not a drug per se. It actually just releases whats already there.
This particurlar "drug" has a category all of its own. Its not a halucinogen. Its legal . And, as the name infers, its for those that want to "divine" themselves. (Find the divinity within them).
Please dont judge what you dont understand, for this little plant has tremendous power to heal and guide,etc. It truly has the power to change broken lives.
Ultimately change is up to the individual, this is just a tool that, if used in the right way, can give a life a significant "boost" in the right direction.
Please remember that the Upanishads ,(the forerunner to the vedas,hinduism,bhuddism,etc.), has at least 20 000 refrences to a drug known as soma. Basically the whole of Eastern thought sprouted from people getting high. And imo, eastern spirituality craps all over christianity.
