Now please help me to debunk this rather ludicrous tale was told last night. A friend (well, a chick I happened to be out with) told me that several of her friends would find Redback spiders, murder the poor arachnids, and proceed to smoke them, resuilting in what she said was a 'fully mad trip, man'. I kind of sat there, mouth agape, with several thoughts running through my head- why would someone decide to smoke a spider, and how the fuck would it cause you to trip? And why was this crazy girl talking to me? Though it aroused my curiousity somewhat, I flat out don't belive it. Any other comments would be good . . . yes I know this a somewhat weird topic, but at least its good for a laugh. :)

Yeah, right... I bet the next thing you'll tell me is that some toads contain DMT and if you smoke their skins you'll trip balls...

Sheesh, you guys will believe anything! ;)

Just on that note. Anyone seen the Simpsons episode where Homer goes away to be a missionary?

He sits in the hammock licking tods, and eventually finds the ' right on' and starts to hallucinate?

I thought that was pretty funny, wheather its true or not I dont know...

Ask to watch them do it next time.
See the results of the said fully mad trip.

Now....I have heard everything!

However, I have heard of Cobra Venom being used in the USA (Mid 1980's Mid west states) So I do not discount anything at this stage...

Ha ha, well these particualr folks are certainly not the most sane, educated or intelligent of peoples- thus the spider smoking tale. What bothers me is how laconically she said, yeh they just looked around the house, found a few red-backs, and smoked 'em- I mean, we live in Melbourne, if their were fucking redbacks in my houe, I certainly wouldn't smoke them, I'd move out!
PS. please note sarcasm in original post, I feel my credibility plummetting!!!!!!!;)

I doubt that smoking a redback spider would do anything as the venom lactrotoxin (?) is a large protein chain that wouldn't take to kindly to been smoked. Plus if it somehow did work i think you'd be in for an extremely sweaty, painful and ultimately unpleasant experience.

i heard something similar to this except it was these two prisoners in jail were caught keeping redback spiders, which they aparantly were milking for venom, diluting the venom and either i.v'ing it or swallowing i can't remember. infact i think i read it on this site.

[Edit: I linked the article above. BT]
