Oops:


A British shaman and self-proclaimed voodoo priest has been jailed for
15 months for using a sacred drink containing a class A drug at a
healing ceremony.

Peter Aziz, 51, made two brews of Ayahuasca with the leaf of the
Chakruna plant - which contains the banned drug N-dimethyltriptamene or
DMT - which were used during the ceremony in a disused hotel.

The brew, used to bring on hallucinations and which often makes those
who drink it vomit, was given to 17 people during a candle-lit ceremony
on the week-long religious retreat in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

Jon, thank you for putting it this way:

 >The next Inkwell.vue conversation is starting, so this one can end (or
  continue, if there's more to say, and I think that might be the case).
