I was just recently listening to Dick Gregory and he said that the herb nutmeg is stronger then Cocaine, Heroine, and many other drugs. Anyone have any information on this? Some people claim that a few spoonfuls of nutmeg will get you high. http://www.theworldwidegourmet.com/products/articles/nutmeg-medicinal-properties/ A spoonful of freshly grated nutmeg taken in the morning on an empty stomach can give you a 24 to 36 hour "high." Aggressiveness is reduced to zero. Problems dissolve. You float in a fuzzy world where life is easy. Of course there are side effects: muscle twitches, sensitivity to light, nasal discharge and diarrhea. This practice has been traced back to prisoners and some young people who, lacking money or an intermediary, were looking for a drug able to detach them from the real world. While in no way intending to recommend this experience to those who have never touched drugs, some psychiatrists suggest that those with a dangerous tendency towards hard drugs - LSD, crack, cocaine, heroin - try this much less toxic substitute which does not attack the cells, in order to gradually wean themselves off drug use and to decrease their dependency as part of the rehabilitation process.
