The Weirdest Ways People Try to Get High

Toads 1 of 16

People will try almost anything to get high and escape the real world for a little while. And if they can't get their hands on real drugs, they'll find what they can! You'll never believe what weird things people have tried in a quest to get high! Don't try any of these at home!

It turns out that the stories about licking hallucinogenic toads are true... well, sort of. There is one species of toad, the Colorado River Toad that produces a venom that contains a hallucinogenic compound. But you shouldn't go around licking it. You have to extract the venom, then dry it and smoke it to get high and even then if you smoke it too much you could die because it is still technically poison! In 2007, someone actually got arrested for doing this.
