Sage is a naturally-occurring western plant that has been burned for spiritual smd ritual purposes for ages. It would be a waste of pot to mix it with sage, and a waste of lungs to try to smoke it.
Some forms of incense, such as Champa, are sometimes used to mask the odor of pot either from the police or just if people find it unpleasant, but sage has spiritual value the way some churches burn incense without having any association with drugs. That's why you almost always smell it at the Temple.
I attended a Celtic- and Wicca-based ceremony at the burn and the woman presiding over the ceremony waved it over the entire wedding party, from our shoes to our heads. This was out in the open so it didn't bother my lungs at all.
The only thing we noticed about the ice line was, on one particular day they automatically threw change (bills) in the tip jar, and then told somebody "we can't make change, sorry." My wife ended up paying $10 for two bags of ice. The next day they didn't do anything like that at all.
