I think we should start advertising more things as legal highs.  See how many things we can get banned.

Wouldn't take too much, a site selling "legal highs" and some e-mails from concerned parents who's children have messed themselves up.

The interesting part would be coming up with silly things to try to get them to ban.

This was done by Thornely in the 60s.  He and some cohorts spread a rumor that banana peels can get you high, if dried and smoked.  This was to see how many stupid hippies would go for it, and how many states would attempt to legislate the sales of bananas.

Thousands of people still believed banana peels would get you high, all the way into the 90s (probably still do), and at least one state attempted to make it illegal to sell bananas in their peels.  I don't remember, but I'm pretty sure the bill didn't pass.

Oh wow, I didn't know that was the origin of that! Cool. :)
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

so yeah are there any references that prove it was Thornley?

No, considering I just totally made that part up.

You are awesome.

Uh, actually, you *can* get high off banana peels, you guys are all just doing it wrong.

- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order is you!

Hyperventilating because you need to puff like a madman to keep the shit lit doesn't count as being high, damn it.

Smoking Banana Peels by The Dead Milkmen was, like, my jam for about a year way back in the day (circa 1990).

I was also one of the rubes who tried getting high off of banana peels.  :oops:

Then, ten years later, along came Pedro from eBay. I guess persistence pays off.

The banana peel thing was bullshit, but the nutmeg thing is true, but raiding and snorting the spice rack isn't going to cut it.

Also, anyone stupid enough to try and get high off nutmeg is getting exactly what they deserve.

Enjoy your cotton-mouth, diarrehea, paranoia and hangover, assholes.

One night, months ago, I bought a pound of Bob's Red Mills poppy seeds, shook them with lemon water in a jug for a little bit, strained 'em and drank the sludge.

Part of the reason I did it was because I didn't think it would work (if that makes any sense). Had the nods something fierce, so I started drinking some cider and felt all warm and... Just great. I have considered doing it again several times, but I don't want to be that guy who goes to rehab for shit people put in muffins.
If I had a million dollars, I'd put it all in a sensible mutual fund.
