THE TOILET IS TALKING TO ME, MAN...and boy, does it have a potty mouth.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to take acid in prison. I don't think anyone could handle that.

How do you trip a ball?

And bad acid on top if it, from the sounds of it.

The mere thought is mind-bendingly terrifying.

Remember kids, psychedelics should never, ever be used as an escape drug if you're feeling depressed and sh*tty.

It. Will. Suck.

Maybe a prison toilet isn't the best place to cook acid.

Sounds like bad acid to me.

To get back to the warning that I received. You may take it with however many grains of salt that you wish. That the brown acid that is circulating around us isn't too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it's your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, ok?

We're gonna take him to the tent for some V8 and orange slices. Remember kids- never take more than you can handle and always know your dealer.
 
2012-01-17 10:16:13 AM  
I wonder how many of them didn't get caught... Anyone that could go off on an acid trip in prison and not go bananas is a scary human being.

I don't think it was bad acid, I think the gravity of the situation was too much for the prisoners. You start to realize you're in a cage with only walls and bars between you and murderers.

It would be cool as hell to trip balls in a prison that was unoccupied with all the doors locked in an open position so you could move about freely.

I've tried the sugar cubes but never the grains of salt. What's that like?

"A second prisoner was so out of control in his room that he was sprayed with a chemical irritant and then restrained."

My god. That would not be a fun way to spend six hours.
 
2012-01-17 10:19:50 AM  
Yeah subby, there's nothing worse than going into a trip so strong that you forget where you are, who you are, even what you are, then coming back to the reality that you're in a cage because society thinks a bad person, and you're about to take a beating from a guy with a club who is immune to the rule of law.

I'm sure the prisoners welcome the diversion - tripping in prison or not. However, a bad trip that ends up in the hospital might be a bit much.

Sounds to me like the guards probably should have had a handle on this a touch earlier, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Since the first guys were non-responsive, they couldn't question them.

As usual, the real losers here are the tax-payers. I shutter to think what the cost was per airlift trip per trip.

This makes you ask yourself though, just where would you draw the recreational line in prison? For most guys, we know the line stops and sald-tossing, but how far down the druggie hole would you go? Hooch - sure. Weed soaked in ball-sack sweat - uhm, I guess. LSD made from kitchen cleaning supplies - maybe I'll take another crack at that bible.

I suppose. But I prefer outside, nature, etc.

But you're probably right about the "bad" thing. At least on a bad trip you can try to ride it out. In this case, you ride it out and you're still in prison.

They didn't take acid.

Spice is to weed as

whatever-the-hell these guys took is to Acid

Honestly, who cuts themselves while on a psychedelic? You might drool on yourself.

On second thought, they are already in prison.

Pro tip: Keeps a few extra sugar cubes in case you have a chance to talk to a mounted police officer they like it when you give their horses treats.

The above quote is not obscure, 14 million people claim to have been their to hear it.

Shrooms in prison would be worse.

Don't forget these are prisoners. They aren't the most mentally stable people to begin with. Throw some acid into the mix and things could get really bad really quick.
I feel sorry for the guys having to be restrained. I couldn't imagine frying while being shackled to a chair, probably with a spit hood and everything.

Where better? What are they going to do, throw you in prison?

Pussies.

I could eat a thousand mics for breakfast and still do a crossword puzzle.

Would prefer 50mg miprocin, however.

Not to mention the sight of your hind after tripping on someone's balls in prison.

Well, to be fair, if someone's going to have a chemical-induced psychotic breakdown and become violently irrational, inside a prison is probably the best place (for the rest of us, at least) for that to happen.

Yeah even the best pure acid in the dosage you prefer would be a bad deal in that situation. I think I'd freak the hell out without the help of drugs if I were ever locked up in prison, acid would NOT help matters at all.

"The man was taken by ambulance to the hospital in Faribault, and doctors there ordered that he be airlifted to Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis."

"Five minutes later, guards found another prisoner acting in a similar manner, and he also was airlifted to Minneapolis."

"He was eventually flown to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis."


Talk about a waste of taxpayer money. These guys essentially poison themselves while incarcerated, and now three of the six are airlifted to safety? Give me a farking break. Lock them in the padded room and let them scream it off.. they'll be fine in about 10 hours.

A good friend of mine found himself on the wrong side of the bars down in New Orleans many years back while tripping out. The local cops had been keeping an eye on him, suspecting that he was selling grass to the locals (which he was). So one day, he tracks down a guy who owed him money. The guy gives him a few tabs for payment, and he decides to take one on the spot. Not long after he was picked up, thrown in a cell, and then interrogated for a few hours - with the local cops threatening to kill him & chuck his body in a bayou to dispose of any evidence. Well, sadly, that was about when he had a psychotic break & he was never right in the head again. A few years after this happened, he took his own life. He was only in his mid-twenties.

A friend of mine went to jail while tripping, probably the only way she made it through since it helped her cope with the nastiness.
