I looked into this after you posted, Daniel. I had heard that it had become legal to have substance based religious ceremonies in some North American jurisdictions. I hadn't known that Health Canada had authorized the importation of aya for religious purposes... [globalnews.ca]

Here's one from TO, where it says that the host,

"James asks guests to donate $60 to attend a ceremony. The money covers the expenses of running the church, preparing the tea and the cost of bringing the sacrament in from Brazil."

That's a reasonable price, I would think, which highlights another concern I have which is that aya ceremonies are probably being invaded by charlatans or those whose main motivation is money (and sometimes sex)... Not to paint a paranoid picture, but as I would think you are closer to the wider market, what are your thoughts on this. Is sorting out a good shaman from a bad one an issue?

Aside from that, I'd be more interest to know if you have anything to add about legal ceremonies on the west coast of Canada or the USA.
