I wonder if chewing natural
stuff like this is ok?

I do not think smoking anything
is healthy.

I can not breathe around smoke.

Everytime I see someone smoking
I have to cross the street so
I am not walking behind them. My
lungs can not take it. I start
gasping for air.

I wonder why the indians smoked or chewed it. Is it like a stimulate,
or does it help calm the nerves or something?

I wonder if you'll be able to
find that other purple flower
herb/weed/plant there that you
want to ID?

God Bless You and Yours!!!
