Twenty-four members of the Santo Daime Church were arrested in Italy following a eight-month police investigation. Forty liters of ayahuasca (erroneously referred to as "DMT" in media reports) were confiscated.
(ANSA) - PERUGIA, 18 MAR - La Finanza ha arrestato 24 aderenti al movimento psuedo-religioso denominato 'Santo Daime' o 'Ayahuasca' per traffico di droga. L'operazione 'Mistica', durata otto mesi, ha permesso di sequestrare 40 litri di Dmt (dimetiltriptamina), sostanza psicotropa allucinogena, utilizzata - fa rilevare la Gdf - dalla stessa congregazione. Le ordinanze di custodia riguardano persone di nazionalita' italiana, brasiliana, francese e portoghese.

maybe those gummint badge-boys could have their bosses talk to the gummint in brazil... the brazil gummint started to lean on the aya-churches & then decided to do the "obvious" thing - sent some gummint mucky-mucks into the church to drink some aya-brew... final conclusion: no problem here, church sacramental tea is okeydokey, worship as you wish to...
(gee, i wonder if (in amerika) we could get dubya & his anti-drug bureaucrats (so intent on hassling mr bronfman & the UDV) to actually attend a session & chug-a-lug some o' that vine o' the soul...
