Another death due to drug prohibition.  "Toadally" not even trolling.  Drug use has a downside, yes, but the downside of drug prohibition is far, far worse.  I want to fight this nonsense.

Was the toad served with mushrooms?

Well, not really. He didn't consume the toads for the drug effect. He merely mistook them for an identical yet edible bullfrog (according to the article).

I work with a guy who was an MP in Korea in the early 70s. He said he often saw old farmers catch and eat raw frogs they'd found while working. The Korean soldiers he worked with found it a little embarrassing and said it was just something old people did.

I had frogs legs at a restaurant once too. I couldn't walk properly and children were screaming and pointing at me while their mothers covered their eyes.

There is a thread over at the shroomery of by someone that took their pet toad that died and did an extraction on the body. It was the last thing he ever posted and there was only one last log on a few days after that might have been the coronor trying to figure out how he died.
