Eh, I drank absinthe and it sucked. It was expensive and all it did was get me drunk fast. I didn't think I was gonna totally trip out or something, but if I wanted to just get drunk, I woulda bought some beer.

It's made from wormwood extract. There are several commercially available versions of it but very few contain necessary concentrations of thujone, its active chemical. Chances are that you'll only encounter bad bottles that will get you too drunk to notice the affects of the thujone. Supposedly Spain's laws allow normal amounts of the drug in absinth, anc Czech Republic as well.

I had a shot of it and while I did feel it very quickly considering only one shot I don't believe the hallucinogen stories I've heard. I kind of think it's just some fabricated story made up about it possibly b/c I don't think it's something you're supposed to be able to own in The U.S. I could be wrong about that last fact though.
