Did you forget your trusty plastic straw on the way to your favorite dive bar for a Pabst and a night of ironic conversation? Never fear, just pick up a hallucinogenic plant on the way.
Gawker: City Room’s Ava Chin was walking in an alley in Gowanus, Brooklyn and saw a wild Jimsonweed (Datura stramonium) plant, known to some as devil’s trumpet, mad apple and locoweed. It’s a hallucinogen with side effects that include “dilated pupils, racing heartbeat, hallucination, delirium, combative behavior and in severe cases, coma and seizures.” In other words, this shit will fuck you up.
We love shit that will fuck us up! Especially if it will keep us from having to listen to our blue haired greasy friend lament about the Hasids one more time. When it comes to that conversation, again, the closer we are to coma, seizures, or death the better.
Want to know what tripping on Jimsonweed is really like? “Mad Mike,” a “self-taught expert” on Jimsonweed can tell you about his personal experiences in the video below: “I’ve seen hobby horses and like weird things on the side of the road, you know, like sparkly horse unicorn type things. Like transparent unicorns…”
Transparent unicorns, hobby horses? Woo! Sign us up. Hear that hipsters? Straws and bloody noses are so yesterday; it’s all about chillin’ with a non-existent sparkly Pegasus now.
