Then cannabis can deepen our shared presence together and contribute to the spread of peace. And when I say "peace" I'm not referring to the cessation of warfare. Peace begins with each one of us and spreads of its own accord from there. Conflicts at the national, tribal, religious level might be the end result of a widespread consciousness transformation.
Here is the final paragraph of book contributor and historian Chris Bennett's chapter "Venerable Traditions."
"Truly, the global circle of people who share cannabis transcends race, nation, and religion, and many are beginning to recognize it for the holy sacrament it once was and can be again. The association between cannabis and sacred states of mind has crossed barriers of cultures and times, and people have continually and independently been drawn to it for these purposes. In this natural substance, perhaps we can find the true sacrament of the natural perennial religion that is at the root of so many traditions."
