Traveling the AM radio dial through the variety of talk radio programming can often be enlightening. As for this Saturday, this was no exception. I came across a piece done on the ManCow Radio Program that talked about Jenkem. For those that don't know, Jenkem is a "drug" that surfaced around the 1990's.
Jenkem, also known as human waste drug, or "Butt Hash," is a supposed to be a hallucinogenic drug made primarily from fermented human waste. Yes, I said, human waste. Initially considered to be an internet hoax, news reports have started surfacing that individuals have actually tried the idea.
In case you don't believe me, here is a news story on the subject. It both explains the way the news was presented, and the way that people dismissed it:
For those that watched the story you might find some interesting things presented. While the story itself says that there is a hoax to the original story, there are those who have actually gone out and tried Jenkem!!!! Now, I realize that Jenkem is not widely used, and is certainly something reserved for the unbelievably slow. However, I am depressed to think that anyone gave this a try, and I am even more saddened that the news bought it. In any case, the idea of a drug called "Butt Hash" is still quite amusing to my sometimes immature mind.
