    Ever tried it? I got some for a gift awhile back and I'm just now trying it.

    Will it make me schizoid?

    First the stuff you get here isn't "true" absinthe.

    Even so, the true or even the stuff you get here will do no different than plain alcohol. I've drank different kinds, including the true stuff. Read About it and watched a special on the history channel which featured the world's most noted brewer of the stuff. Nothing but an alcohol buzz. Anti liquor fanatics somehow convinced the world this stuff demonized you. The brewers of it love the urban legend for now because people are always looking for a new high.


    I mean schtoopy snorts bath salts for christs sake.

    That's where the truest to form is from. That's where that most revered brewer of it lives, although he's American.

    Still only an alcohol buzz.

    I drank some in England when I was about 19. Ended up VERY drunk, but I suspect it had a lot to do with not knowing my limits with alcohol at that point. I've had some here in the states too, and it was no different than any other alcohol.
