<div class="quote-block"><b>Scorpion bites latest drug craze</b><br><br><i>May 1, 2003</i><br><br><br><br>
THE trendy and the elite in India's wealthy western state of Gujarat, bored with mundane drugs, are turning to the sting of a scorpion to get their kicks, a press report said.<br><br><br><br>
The Times of India said the affluent head in their cars to tribal areas near the coastal town of Bharuch, where scorpions abound, seeking their fixes.<br><br><br><br>
Locals have put up stalls under trees and keep a number of the arachnids in tin cans with perforated lids.<br><br><br><br>
After the customer pays a fee of 150 to 200 rupees (about $A5-7) the scorpion is produced and placed on the body of the thrill-seeker, who is then viciously stung.<br><br><br><br>
Users say after the initial pain the venom produces an illusionary, floating feeling.<br><br><br><br>
"You won't die," promises one vendor, named in the report only as Nathu. "You should try it at least once ... a lifetime experience."<br><br><br><br>
Nathu insists customers pay upfront -- to make sure he doesn't get stung himself.<br><br><br><br>

Weird. This is similar to the people who "milk" Colorado River Toads for their venom and smoke it.<br><br><br><br>
All the best drugs come from plants, everyone knows that.

I have an idea for the newest trend to get high:<br><br><br><br>
The trendy and rich elite can stop by anytime and for $500 I give them a huge WHACK with a big stick.<br><br><br><br>
Just like with the scorpion sting, after the initial pain this produces an illusionary, floating feeling.<br><br><br><br>
