Maybe we should send him a sample of absinthe and some real information so he doesn't present a bunch of crap about halluncinations, seizures and murderous rampages in which ears fly.
Yes, he seems like a real expert on "the drug" absinthe.
He scares me.
I heard he's a pedophile.... unless he says nice things about absinthe, in which case he'd be swell.
This sounds like a situation where headhoncho of Oxygenee, Ltd. should contact said "health educator" and from his bully pulpit of absinthe information educate him.
I agree, coming from anyone else wouldn't carry the same weight. Besides the fact that drawing this mans
attention seems like a delicate matter.

but at least Oxy lives outside beyond his reach in the civilized world.
The Jade Man
The list of topics appears to comprise substances that are uncontroversial among US law enforcement, excepting absinthe which is simply obscure, and I doubt absinthe will get special treatment. These lectures cannot be a good thing, in my view.
GHB is a VERY misunderstood drug. Granted the lecture series was not soley based on gamma hydroxybutyrate. But come on... Give us a break with the inclusion of Absinthe as a psychotropic.
I would really be curious to hear what is actually said about Absinthe. I don't understand how it can be discussed with drugs such as meth.
Jaded Prole
No doubt they'll cite Jad Adams and other know-nothings about excited neurons, violent potential, seizures, hallucinations, and jumping off cruise ships . . .
It would be very interesting to hear or read what was said. This was on the program regarding absinthe:

He needs to keep off the drugs if he wants to spell correctly.

I was about to suggest that you could provide a workshop on "Apostrophe Abuse: Signs, Symptoms, and Solutions".
