    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Law enforcement authorities have discovered that people are willing to go to great lengths to get high, including a troubling new method that features a frightened toad.
    "Toad smoking," which is a substitute for "toad licking," is done by extracting venom from the Sonoran Desert toad of the Colorado River. The toad's venom — which is secreted when the toad gets angry or scared — contains a hallucinogen called bufotenine that can be dried and smoked to produce a buzz.
    In October, a Kansas City man was charged with possessing a controlled substance after Clay County authorities determined he possessed a toad with the intent to use its venom to get high.
    Clay County Prosecutor Daniel White said possessing the toad is not illegal, but using it to get high off its venom is.
    "It is easier to get it, and law enforcement might not immediately know you use it to get high," White said. "It's sort of a New Age way to get high. You convince yourself it is OK because it is something you get naturally from our environment.
    "There are a lot of things that are created naturally but they are still not legal," he said.
    /**/
    White said that for years people experimented with "toad licking," and now toad smoking is considered a substitute. To do so, a person heats up the frog's venom to break down its toxins and preserve the hallucinogen, which is dried.
    He said some Internet sites feature an instructional video on how to extract the toad's venom.
    Police found the toad when they went to a northern Kansas City home to investigate a suspected meth lab. They later arrested David S. Theiss, 21, and charged him with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possessing drug paraphernalia — the toad.
    Theiss also is accused of possessing mescaline, a controlled substance extracted from a cactus.
    While smoking toad venom might sound extreme, an even more disturbing method to get high possibly includes sniffing fermented human waste. Vicky Ward, manager of prevention services at Tri-County Mental Health Services in Kansas City, said she has read e-mail warnings about a drug called jenkem.
    The drug is made from fermented feces and urine.
    "We work with a lot of youths and we ask them whether anyone has tried it and they said no," Ward said. "They (the youths) have heard about it because of the Internet."
    But whether people actually use of jenkem has not been determined, Ward said, noting that a Web site that investigates urban legends isn't clear on the matter.
    "Kids get ideas that later turn out to be unfounded, but you will get some idiots who will try anything," she said.

    Man, if Fox hadn't been such dicks and had all the Futurama and Family Guy pulled from youtube, we'd have the proper PSA to go with this.

    Wow. I had a Colorado River Toad "get" into the house. It got under the damn dish washer and had a heck of a time to getting it out. Boy, did that little sucker secrete some NASTY stuff. Didn't touch him, except with a grabbing tool and shoved his but into a bucket. Threw that thing back over the fence!

    You'll get chills all through your body
    and you'll lose all control of your bladder
    and your sphincter, that's your bum hole.

    'Cos if you use toad, then I'm telling you...
    You can kiss your life goodbye.

    Yeah when you use toad,
    It will mess you up.
    It will make your mama cry
    That's no lie,
    You'll choke on your tounge and die

    You've got to give it up
    You got to give up the toad now
    It's no joke buddy, give it up
    You got to give up the toad now
    Or you'll croke
    You've got to give it up,
    And don't smoke
    Or you will see,
    It hurts to pee

    There'll be blood, gushing from ya
    Everytime that you cough
    And forget getting lucky,
    It falls off

    Yeah you'd better wise up
    'Cos I'm telling you
    Toad is what Lando forbids

    Got to give it all up
    Or you're gonna see
    Your whole life will hit the skids
    And your kids will be born without eyelids

    You've got to give it up
    You got to give up the toad now
    Thanks to you
    And just give it up
    Give up the toad now (line sung by Brian)
    Thanks to you

    Give it up
    Got to give up the toad now, Oh-oh-oooh
    I'm no fool, Lando's cool
    YEAH!!!

    Am I the only one who just loves it when the only moral reason people can give for not doing something is that it isn't legal?

    last time I checked, legality was all law-enforcement officials looked for.

    Okay, let me ask this question.

    Do you think the police might find it suspicious if you had an ice chest full of Colorado River Toads in the back of one's truck? Just asking, as they come out when it is warm and wet down here or live in wet areas. I was thinking about a side or second job...

    Police: "Sir, we're going to have to arrest you. You have too many toads. This is possesion with intent to distribute."

    My03Tundra: "No sir, really. I'm just removing them from peoples houses. Honest!"

    LOL.
    Seriously. What in the hell happened that the best thing we have to do in this country is figure out was to get high? What ever happened to good old adrenaline rushes and such. Ah, what ever. I guess this is just part of natural selection.

    Gotta weed out the idiots and morons some way, and there aren't enough legitimate Darwin Awards candidates. But, I THINK there could be some that could easily be or become DA candidates here on this site.
