An alternative medicine conference has ended in chaos in Germany after dozens of delegates took a LSD-like drug and started suffering from hallucinations.
First off, full disclosure: I consider homeopathy to be utter rubbish, because it is utter rubbish.
But so many jokes …
Broadcaster NDR described the 29 men and women “staggering around, rolling in a meadow, talking gibberish and suffering severe cramps”.
Of course they were talking gibberish. The question is whether that was before or after they took the drug, or both.
Maybe the delegates just drank water with the imprint of the hallucinogen? Because, as we’re told, the imprint of a drug can be just as pharmacologically active as the drug itself. The dose-response concept be damned.
I once was treated to a lecture on homeopathy by one of the faithful, who earnestly informed me that it worked because water bore the imprints of drugs that had been in the water. I asked him what happened to the imprints of turds that had been in the water.
That kinda ended the conversation.
