Knowledge is power.

Look at it this way, after you read alot of books you'll be alot smarter. Grow on that and eventually you'll have a fat payroll. And never have to worry about getting high again. Or the money problem that is.

Orrrrr.......you could always keep trying cheap ways to get high.

Jenkem

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Jump to: navigation, search
<!-- start content -->Jenkem is a hallucinogenic recreational drug composed of noxious gas formed from fermented human sewage.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-BBC_0>[1]</SUP> Jenkem emerged amongst Zambian street children some time before the mid-1990s. In November 2007, anecdotes were widely repeated in the American media which gave the impression that Jenkem was a popular drug taking hold with American teenagers. Media reports were characterized by disbelief and distaste for the "grossness" of the phenomenon.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-Salon_0>[2]</SUP> However, several sources allege that these reports are based on a hoax (see section below). Since November 2007, no new reports have appeared to corroborate the early speculations.
<TABLE class=toc id=toc summary=Contents><TBODY><TR><TD>Contents

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE><SCRIPT type=text/javascript>//<![CDATA[ if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } //]]></SCRIPT>
[edit] Use among Zambian street children

According to a 1998 report in The New York Times, Fountain of Hope, a non-profit organization, informs that Jenkem is used by street children in Lusaka, Zambia to obtain a "powerful high".<SUP class=reference id=_ref-0>[3]</SUP> In 2002, Project Concern International Zambia and Fountain of Hope released a report entitled "Rapid Assessment of Street Children In Lusaka," where Jenkem is listed as the third most popular drug among Lusaka's street children, following Dagga (cannabis) and "glue and Dagga" but ahead of "Ballan" (uncured tobacco) and petrol.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-1>[4]</SUP> The raw materials are plentiful and freely available in the form of fecal matter from the open sewers of Lusaka. This is then fermented in plastic bottles and the fumes are inhaled. John C. Zulu, director of the Ministry of Sport, Youth and Child Development in Zambia informs Salon.com in November 2007 that Jenkem usage is less common than glue-sniffing and, "Initially, they used to get it from the sewer, but they make it anywhere [...] They say it keeps them warm and makes them fearless."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-Salon_1>[2]</SUP>

[edit] Psychoactive effects

The effects of Jenkem inhalation last for around an hour and consist of auditory and visual hallucinations.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-BBC_1>[1]</SUP> In 1995 fifth-grader in Lusaka said of Jenkem to an reporter from IPS, an independent wire service, "Old man, this is more potent than cannabis."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-IPS_0>[5]</SUP> In a BBC report four years later, a 16-year-old boy described his preference for jenkem over other inhalants, "With glue, I just hear voices in my head. But with Jenkem, I see visions. I see my mother who is dead and I forget about the problems in my life."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-BBC_2>[1]</SUP>

[edit] Making Jenkem

In the book Children of AIDS: Africa's Orphan Crisis by Emma Guest, the making of Jenkem is described, "fermented human sewage, scraped from pipes and stored in plastic bags for a week or so, until it gives off numbing, intoxicating fumes."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-2>[6]</SUP> The process is similarly described in the 1995 IPS report, "Human excreta is scooped up from the edges of the sewer ponds in old cans and containers which are covered with a polyethylene bag and left to stew or ferment for a week."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-IPS_1>[5]</SUP>. In the BBC 1999 article the process is described as, "...the dark brown sludge, gathering up fistfuls and stuffing it into small plastic bottles. They tap the bottles on the ground, taking care to leave enough room for methane to form at the top."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-BBC_3>[1]</SUP>

[edit] Health issues

The general concerns related to "huffing" and hallucinogenic drugs apply to Jenkem usage. The possibility of fecal-oral contamination due to lacking hygienic conditions during Jenkem manufacturing, which could lead to diarrhea and other gastrointestinal infections, must also be considered. Dr. Fumito Ichinose, an anesthesia specialist in Boston who conducted a study on the effects of hydrogen sulfide gas, or "sewer gas," on mice, informs Salon.com that "the inhalation of gases like those produced from Jenkem could result in hypoxia, a lack of oxygen flow to the body that could be alternately euphoric and physically dangerous."<SUP class=reference id=_ref-Salon_2>[2]</SUP> It has been noted that Jenkem usage will leave a taste of sewage in the mouth lasting for several days.

[edit] Pharmacology

The pharmacology, that is the composition and active components of the Jenkem gas is not known. Neither is its pharmacodynamics which is how the chemical acts on the body. It is notable that none of the usual authorities on psychoactive drugs have involved themselves in the investigation of this drug. This includes MAPS and Lycaeum Synaesthesia. Erowid has covered the subject briefly in their questions section and concluded that it is a hoax.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-3>[7]</SUP>

[edit] First media reports 1995—2004

The first media description of Jenkem came from an Inter Press Service wire report in 1995.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-IPS_2>[5]</SUP> In 1999 BBC News then ran a story devoted to this new drug.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-BBC_4>[1]</SUP> Then in 2004 the South African weekly investigative newspaper Mail & Guardian included the mention of Jenkem abuse in a report on the predicament of Zambia's street children.<SUP class=reference id=_ref-4>[8]</SUP> All three news reports are based on correspondent investigations in Lusaka, Zambia. None of them give information as to how or when the children first began manufacturing jenkem.

Dude, you're not just going to get high with shit you have laying around your house. It's going to take some time, money, and effort on your part to procure what you need to get high.

I think the bigger problem is that you're so desperate for a buzz you're willing to start smoking catnip.

i second that, your too desperate for a buzz maybe time for a t-break, during that break you will save money and when u start smoking again you will get higher
