I consider drug abuse as the human organism relying on the drug for their own sanity and physical
You could say that regulations and laws will only interfere when and if you get caught by the authorities after you use the drugs, but I think that
there are some that are used in ceremonial purposes, but those people are careful not to get in trouble for using them.
It is true that a drug will not be fully ignored by those who have access to them, but laws are there for those willing to risk the chance of getting
caught using them.
I remember an elderly traditional person who believed in "medicinal plants" that drank something that was made by these two guys from South America.
These guys transported this "medicine" all the way up to Canada. The old lady died soon after drinking the substance made by these two guys which is
when the authorities got involved. It was found the substances were illegal in Canada that the old lady consumed, which then led to the prosecution of
these two people who brought them into Canada.
That's one example of getting caught for using these ceremonial substances, but the laws are there to minimize the impact of them.
