In 1997, the U.S. military declared it would now allow soldiers of Native American descent to use peyote for religious purposes. Peyote use, however, is restricted to enrolled tribal members who are also members of a Native American Church, and the substance may not be brought on military vehicles, planes, vessels or bases.
