If you think that’s possible satire, what do you think of tobacco snuff? Clerk at the corner bodega dips and snorts it...in 2019.
Yeah, in all likelihood, those indigenous peeps used that nicotine delivery system.

That is a pretty wild was to get messed up. I am not a cigarette smoker but I am a heavy smoker of the other kind. 9% sounds like a good deal if you want to really feel the joys of addiction.
Nice find. The suggested article was good too. Got into the magic beliefs.
“ the Earthmaker created a weed with a pleasant odor and all of the spirits wanted it. The weed was called tobacco. Earthmaker then showed the people how to use it, how to crush it, and smoke it in a pipe. To all of the spirits Earthmaker said: “Now, whatever human beings ask from me and for which they offer tobacco I will not be able to refuse it. I myself will not be in control of this weed. If they give me a pipefull of this and make a request I will not be able to refuse it.”
“Their chiefs employ a tube shaped like a Y, filled with the lighted weed, inserting the forked extremities into their nostrils. . . . In this way they imbibe the smoke until they become unconscious and lie sprawling on the ground like men in a drunken slumber.”
