Back onto the original topic of the thread, here's a link to an article on issues surrounding the use of drugs and alcohol in some North East Arnhem Land communities and some of the harrowing effects of the trade:

this talks about the history of hemp in Australia (not the specific regions, but still)
http://www.hempembassy.net/hempe/aushistory.html
according to this, there was hemp clothing manufacture as early as 1800. so the plant was at least on the continent by that time.
at least its something...

KV,

I am curious as to if you are attempting to justify your herb usage to yourself, or to others?

neither.
just contributing more info.
I don't have to justify anything to anyone especially what I do to my mind and body.
This topic has nothing to do with me, other than i was curious about past use and history of hemp in AU. nothing more.

I think Gopal is a bit incorrect in stating that Aboriginals had little connection with the use of mind-altering substances (psychoactives, ethnobotanicals etc.) Pituri (duboisia hopwoodii) aka "camel poison" is one of the better known and widely ranging herbs that they used up into post-contact times. Pituri, and there are many ways to spell it, contained alkaloids that were mildly stimulant and narcotic. It was much like the white mans tobacco; which ended up replacing it since it was more abundant. There are cases of other plants being used, mushrooms as well. Because the continent was large and incorporated many environments from desert to rainforest to mountains, there were a variety of plants, trees, and fungi used by different groups. Not long ago I found an article on Aboriginal use of medicinal plants and I was surprised by how many substances they had used. Marijuana was not known to them for most of their history, though. I'll see if I can find that article again so I can post it here for all to see.

i had figured hallucinogens were used. thats obvious from some of their artworks and themes. albeit i was a bit hesitant to even bring it up, based on the reaction from the original post. LOL
soma, gods flesh, the mushroom.....

KV's unfaultering belief in David Ike is enough to convince to keep away from drugs! :albino:
