Moreover, humans can learn to consume these substances moderately and safely and not fall victim to hardcore dysfunctional addiction. While this fact goes against the common sense of our culture, it was a part of the wisdom traditions of our ancestors in at least some early tribal societies for up to 40,000 years.
