Ain’t No Party Like A German Homeopathy Party ‘Cause A German Homeopathy Party Don’t STOP

Are you a believer in alternative medicine? Do you like Germany? Me neither. And yet when you put two awful things together, sometimes you can come up with something wonderful.

Lizzie Dearden, The Independent (UK):

An alternative medicine conference has ended in chaos in Germany after dozens of delegates took a LSD-like drug and started suffering from hallucinations.

Broadcaster NDR described the 29 men and women “staggering around, rolling in a meadow, talking gibberish and suffering severe cramps”.

Sounds like my last family reunion.

The group of “Heilpraktikers” was discovered at the hotel where they held their conference in the town of Handeloh, south of Hamburg, on Friday…

Note to German hippies: It’s nice that you guys have your own little words for everything, but calling yourselves anything starting with “Heil” is not going to play very well in the rest of the world. Might wanna fix that.

Tests on their blood and urine revealed they had all taken hallucinogenic drug 2C-E, which is known as Aquarust in Germany and has been illegal there since the end of last year.

At last report, German authorities were waiting for the Heilpraktikers (really, guys?) to return from Planeten Mars to ask them if they were dosed with this stuff, or if they just really wanted to have a good time.

I hope they’re all okay, despite being not only German but also junk-science quacks. Everybody’s gotta make a living.
