The Fée Verte Absinthe Forum - The Oldest, Largest, Most Authoritative Absinthe Forum. > Absinthe & Absinthiana > Absinthe History
In an old Swedish newspaper fom 1908 one can read the story about the prosecution against a naval officer/doctor on trial for not securing the medical cabinet on board according to procedure.

Due to this a medic on the ship, #18 Karlsson, while drunk headed for the cabinet to try and get a hold of some absinthe. By mistake he took the bottle next to it, which was a bottle of opium, and emptied it. This in turn killed him.


just wanted to share this little anecdote of Swedish absinthe history...
