    True but it takes VERY large amounts.

    I actually know someone who tried it once - once - back in his college days. According to him it was intensely unpleasant and no one would do it a second time on purpose except perhaps for someone desperate to escape their circumstances with no other route, which is why they have to keep it locked up in prisons.

    Roger;

    On nights when I have had Nutmeg on something, I have the most amazing dreams regardless of amount!

    At one time in England a young girl would drimk a cup of warm milk flavored with honey and half a grated nutmeg. It was said that she would dream that night of her intended husband.

    When I was in college one of my roommates made beef stroganoff and got carried away with the nutmeg. We all had vivid technicolor dreams that night.

    It becomes both harder and more obnoxious for normal people to get a hold of chemicals for legitimate uses. Note that the supply of illicit drugs remains cheap and easy to source. I find this both amusing and infuriating. A clear indication that we as a society have dropped the ball, and idiocracy rules the roost.

    See my post 36 and comment, "the inmates are in charge of the asylum."

    Sigh.

    Lately, my dreams have been dim and not very colorful. I might try a little nutmeg on something before I go to bed.

    I still don't know what the big deal is. I haven't had trouble getting anything, and I have a far wider selection of exotic chemicals in my darkroom than the average worker. Filling out a token piece of paper
    evey few years stating that you intend to use a particular compound for photographic applications is hardly an example of an oppressive regime. If some idiot out there wishes to acquire mercury salts for
    purposes of personally smoking these, I could care less - just give them the Darwin award in advance. But if they are slipping this kind of thing into allegedly benign drugs for naive and unsuspecting kids,
    that's an entirely different subject and worth monitoring.

    Poor choice of words on my part. I think 'photo ID' is the correct term. Non-drivers aren't discriminated against. (as long as they have picture ID, which is required for all adults)
