Subject: RE: Should drink pitchers be required for folk venues
A large part of that consumption was due to the fact that the available water was either unpalatable or actively dangerous to drink. Even today, we have chronic problems with chemical or bacteriological infiltration of source water in supposedly civilized water.

A large portion of the world does not have unpolluted water to drink and cook with. It's just less acceptable to walk around stoned all of the time.
