    Real absinthe has wormwood in it. Which is a toxin, in high enough doses in can induce some psychoactive symptoms.

    Absinthe with wormwood is Illegal in the U.S.
    you can get it here (still hard to find) but it wont have wormwood.

    Some european countries and most countries south of the U.S. border you can aquire the real stuff.

    :cool:

    the EU ban is over and you can have it shipped from oversease..it is regualted in the US as a food, not as a drug.

  10. I know you can get it in Australia. A friend of mine who has lived there for a year told me, that he can get it. Maybe when he comes back in June, I'll tell him to sneak me a bottle. ;)

    REAL absinthe is illegal in the US. You can order it from Europe. I got mine from Spain. The exact same bottle (brand) I got was pictured earlier in this thread. It took 8 weeks to arrive and was subject to customs seizure of discovered.
    Absinthe goves me a alcohol drunk and not a THC-type high. The drunk is a very mellow drunk, though. Enjoyable.

    The taste is awful. It tastes like Jagermeister. Very much a strong licorice flavor. Nasty, IMO.

    Everyone should try in once if only to thumb your nose at the federal government's stupid assed ban on it.

    I have some absinthe sitting in the fridge right now. I made it myself by using the recipe in erowid.com.

    I could only get 2 shots of that stuff down bcause it is beyond nasty tasting. I'm still trying to find something to mix it with. Any suggestions?

    BTW- Those two shots were enough to feel a nice buzz of alcohol and the wormwood! Kinda like a regular buzz with a semi-psycadelic, seritonin boosting feeling. Very smooth, once you can get past that damn taste.. ukk:eek:

    its not illegal is just not for human consupsion, so if you had some labed absinthe do not drink and a cop found it in your house nothing will happen to you
