Why do you think that drug usage is necessary for the disciples to follow Him? Jim Jones didn't get his followers to follow him to the koolaid pitcher with drugs, and he has a couple thousand, and you don't believe Christ picked tweleve guys to be His disciples without mind-altering drugs? Furthermore, there is no reason to believe this was the case.
Additionally, Chuck's family weren't following him because of hallucinogenics; they followed him because eh was charismatic, and they were weak-minded, gullible morons.

negativenihil, it will be off topic but your avatar disturbed my firewall, its link directs the firefox to connect to the avatar image through port 8090 (http:// accessdenied.org.nyud.net:8090/~zero/ats.jpg ) what happened to good old port:80. it would be better if it wouldnt try to use a non-standard port so the viewers including me could tame their net security paranoias more easily.
