Abstract: In many parts of the world natives used to consume a number of plants as hallucinogens, or at least as enervating agents, of which tobacco was the mildest. In the Americas pipes dating several centuries BC are commonly found in archaeological contexts. Consumption was not considered a pastime or entertainment, but a significant ceremonial or religious activity.
