Humans have been inhaling smoke for a very long time. The Native Americans, stuffing their pipes. A few millennia before that, we had ancient tribes gathering around the fire in the night, throwing herbs on the flames, breathing in, breathing out.

All those shamanic rituals. Getting closer to the gods, and each other.
