Drug Crazed Dolphins Party on Poison Puffa Fish
Scientists investigating dolphins have captured them on camera throwing wild underwater parties at which the ‘clever fish’ shamelessly share toxic hallucinogenics extracted from puffa fish.
BBC zoologist Rob Pilley told the Sunday Times, he’d observed dolphins chewing the notoriously poisonous sushi speciality ‘gently’ provoking them to release small quantities of their narcotic defence, which the dolphins then shared with friends who rapidly ‘began acting most peculiarly’
“It reminded us of that craze a few years ago when people started licking toads to get a buzz,” the zoologist told the Times,“especially the way they hung there in a daze afterwards.”
Toad licking was popularised in the 70s by Albert Most who as well as writing widely circulated ‘how to’ pamphlet ‘The Psychedelic Toad of the Sonoran Desert set up The Church of the Toad of Light.
Explaining in detail how ‘fresh venom can easily be collected without harm to the toad’, Mr Moat said smoking a piece of dried venom ‘about the size of a paper match head’ produced an extremely strong psychedelic experience which nevertheless lasted less than 15 minutes.
“Within thirty seconds, there will be an onset of almost overwhelming psychedelic effects,” he reported. “You will be completely absorbed in a complex chemical event characterized by an overload of thoughts and perception, brief collapse of the EGO, and loss of the space-time continuum.”
