On her trip to Greece Mayes finds an herb called "fascomilo" which she says "perfumes our car with a sage and dust scent." Her husband, Ed, is quick to point out that it "smells like marijuana." And so she slips the leaves inside her guidebook.
My women's group sometimes burns sage as part of a purification ritual. It does smell very much like marijuana. The nostalgia alone can make me a bit buzzed.
