The Weirdest Ways People Try to Get High
While cats can get high off of both catnip and marijuana, the same is not true of humans. Yet that doesn’t stop some people from smoking their cat’s weed anyway! Unfortunately, all it really does is give people headaches and make them nauseous, especially if they smoke a lot of it, which might easily happen when it doesn’t make you high!
There is a mushroom called the fly-agaric that produces hallucinations but is also poisonous that grows in the Arctic. So some Eskimos and Siberians discovered an ingenious way to safely get high off of the shroom: drink the urine of reindeer who ate them. Apparently the reindeer’s system filters out the toxins but not the hallucinogen. It’s perfect! It is a practice that has been going on for a long time and might even be a possible origin for the flying reindeer of Santa Claus.
