    That is quite interesting Thoth although I think you are suggesting just that yes if the cops find your pot set-up they will probably be bored and ignore it but they get excited if they find you have a tobacco plant or a 'shine lab

    Grande wormwood is the thujone bearing species and used in absinthe. Cultivation to get max thujone content is tricky, but it grows like crazy. BTW Absente is made with Southern Wormwood. There are folks who specialise in growing organic mountain wormwood for use in steeping recipes like Piołunówka. You can also make a version of absinthe using high-proof liquor at home:

    The Independent Liquorist: OR, The Art of Manufacturing and Preparing All Kinds Of Cordials, Syrups, Bitters, Wines, Champagne, Beer, Punches, Tinctures, Extracts, Essences, Flavorings, Colorings, Worcestershire Sauce, Club Sauce, Catsups, Pickles, Preserves, Jams, Jellies, Etc, Etc. by L. Monzert, Practical Liquorist and Chemist, Published by Dick & Fitzgerald, 18 Ann Street, New York, 1866:

    151.- Absinthe

    Take 26 ounces of fennel seed.
    5 ounces anise-seed.
    13 ounces liquorice root.
    8 gallons alcohol 95 per cent.
    6 do. water
    4 ounces peppermint.
    12 ounces wormwood.

    Let the whole infuse ten days. Press it in a fruit-press, and filter through a paper pre-pared filter. (See filter No. 1.)

    Obviously you need to tweak the recipe a bit! The taste is not to everyones liking and is a challenging complex bitterness. PM me if you need more advice.

    I love fennel.

    theres anotherdangerous way to drink it.

    i'm rather glad its legal over there, there were absinthe kits that were lethal. i know of someone who made himself diabetic and seriously fuck up his kidneys with such a kit, and he had been using them for a while, spent christmass in hospital.

    its one of those drinks i will not attempt (though i'll attempt many)

    tell me about it. the kit was supplied by hi own cousin who still denies it was the kt that did the damage, even when i went through the lists of symptoms from Thujone poisoning.

    so very very irresponsible in my honest opinion

    Well it is illegal, and green, plus those crocodile penises are pretty grotesque when they're unsheathed...

    id actually wasnt thinking of thujone/wormwood when i made my comment. ive seen a kit or two with additives that are straight out toxic when consumed. such as mercury.
