Can someone please explain to me the practice of smoking ants?

A roommate of my friend's was smoking, but it wasn't weed or tobacco. It was ants. I had never seen or heard of this before, and I'm having trouble finding any more information on the internet other than this is a practice from the east. Has anyone else ever seen or experienced this? Are they special ants? Has this been going on for long? How common is this practice? I'm also interested in reading about the effects and, if possible, the chemistry behind it (such as is there some neurotransmitter that is affected or whatever).
