Objetivo. Identificar las fechas más antiguas que se conozcan de la relación humana con las principales plantas embriagantes del mundo. Metodología. Extraer los datos de la literatura arqueológica especializada, excluyendo los dudosos o erróneos. Resultados. Las fechas más antiguas se relacionan en la tabla 1. Conclusiones. Estas fechas, en su conjunto, evidencian de manera general la utilización de las drogas vegetales a partir de los períodos pre Formativos (para las Américas) y Neolíticos (para los otros continentes) de las culturas humanas.
