Alcoholic thrushes really do exist. So do other animal drinkers, who are absolutely wild about alcohol and other drugs. Many psychoactive plants are suitable for adding to alcohol. They are all of them all too human: it appears that inebriation also produces feelings of happiness in animals. Cannabis may be added to tequila, Mandragora officinarum to brandy, Ephedra to brandy, Brugmansia to light rum, Datura innoxia to tequila, peyote (Lophophora williamsii) to mescal, and fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) to vodka. This traditional rakshi container features the face of Bhairab, the god responsible for alcohol inebriation.

In addition, many of them, including alcohol, nicotine, hallucinogens, opioids, and marijuana, have been used for medicinal and healing purposes.

The disease model called for a nonjudgmental response and compas-sionate treatment of alcoholics just as patients with medical diseases receive.
