    Yep, you can find tons of stuff on line. But I guess I just dont trust it. We/I need some one in a producing country, like France or Spain.

    I remember they had an article on the Green Fairy in the Robb Report awhile back. It seems the main problem is no one knows the old recipe. While there are some on the market, they supposedly are really foul and some of them are questionably safe.

    I've tried many a bottle of Absinthe in my overseas adventures...and I must truly say after MANY different brands there is no truth to the rumors about it! Though it WILL get you very drunk (140+ proof), it will not do anything else....except maybe catch your best friend's German wife's kitchen table on fire (don't ask). I even got some to the US, but all it did was make my ex-ex girlfriend drunk (she was maybe 90 lbs. wet at the time) and really sick.

    Those all seem to be anise flavored liqueurs. Real absinthe require the extract of wormwood, which is illegal in the US, and until recently, I believe was illegal all over Europe. Real absinthe may never exist again, its recipe lost to the sands of time.

    I my experience (which is limited) with absinthe, i found that it did a pretty good job of doing what is was supposed to, not to say that i was ready to try to fly, but it did the trick

    Why don't you go down to the nearest Gas-station or liqour store and buy some? That's a whole damn cheaper and easier. That's what we do in our country :)

    Next time I am in the states will gladly bring over a bottle and post it onto you, but be warned, I did have a bad exccperience with it once, had a few too many coupled to a few too many beers and did hallucinate (thought I was dead - or at least felt like it)

    The stuff from Japan is terrible tasting. If you want to see things why not just get shrooms or acid? You can get shrooms from sources online so there's little risk involved.

    Licking toads is another good way of going into an "altered state of mind"...

    It's widely available on the web. I ordered some Czech absinthe a while back. The wife and I drank the whole bottle at once. Vilest stuff ever. Got wasted in the worst way. Not looking to repeat the experience anytime soon.

    there you can buy the potent stuff almost legaly, its pretty much illegal all over Europe as well, at least the absinth with the sufficient amount of active ingredients.
    I drank two shots of this stuff without drinking any alcohol prior and felt the effect, pretty damn funny.

    Good luck!

    There was a rumor going around n.o. for a while that someone had a case from the 1800's that was going to be auctioned off. I don't know if that would be legal or not though. I have not heard any more about it.

    I was told that better vodka is made from Potato's and not grain. I have not tried any yet. Anyone have any experience with it? I was told to try Chopin.

    If it was a pre-ban, it would be legal. Ipso Facto is a ***** sometimes.


    It would also cost a SHlTLOAD!!!!!!!!
