Okay, can someone tell me why the hell the author chose "spice" as some super drug?  [dontget]

I never really got that.

Whenever I heard the word when reading the novel I always associated it with oregano.

I thought Paprika, but that was around the days that I was watching Blues Clues.

there are lots of minerals and spices that are used for human consumption, so I think they just used the same term for it, because people consume it for a similar purpose.

Weed is an herb that can be used in cooking, and its a 'drug'
