Well he did write it based of one of those experiences... But it was suppose to be mystical. A "Mystical Hookah-Smoking Intellectual Caterpillar". How cool is that. i didn't associate the Caterpillar with illegal substances even after i knew about the story's origin. There's a lot of ways in which the hookah is getting a bad rap. Have you seen the online head-shops? They all sell hookahs... But no tobacco... only "Legal herbal Smokes".
