    Smile Absinthe

    Somebody coming from would kindly bring Absinthe. Don't worry about customs officers, they don't know what it is. They don't even check your bags. Just tell is a spirit similar to jaggeirmeister. I would be a nice present for your Americans coachella friends.

    But none of that obnoxious "wormwood-flavored" French stuff. It's all about the Czech varieties.

    from what I understand in the US, its not illegal to posess Absinthe but it is illegal to sell it....makes sense to me.


    ah here we go
    In the United States, Absinthe is not a controlled substance but its sale in bars and liquor stores is banned. Absinthe is still ... legal to purchase and possess in the United States .

    yea, anybody that is coming to coachella, from a country where you can obtain absinthe, shout me a pm. Im local, meaning I know how to get things for you here, that customs would definately have a problem with.

    Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder!

    Fun with halucinogens. There is tons of different types available in London - but it's about 60 dollars a bottle.

    Just don't expect to take any liquids on the plane with you, they must be in your checked-in baggage or they'll be confiscated. My girlfriend and I had an unopened bottle of wine, several of her small bottles of perfume, and a travel-sized bottle of Scope taken away from us in December. After we landed we realized that they had failed to confiscate a small Swiss Army knife she forgot was in her hand bag, apparently one can do more damage with mouthwash than a small knife these days...

    That's not the real absinthe ... the one that is sold in the US don't have the hallucinogen element ...

    People coming from overseas put the bottles inside your checked bags.. you won't have any problems...

    If somebody want to charge me for the bottle send me a private message .. I'll buy it from you

    I have always wanted to try it, but I haven't had a chance to get my hands on the good stuff. A friend got some in mexico and it didn't do shit. I doubt there was much if any wormwood in it. Whats a good brand and wormwood level?

    Absinthe King Gold, is around $200 a normal price for it?

    Absinthe Original Bitter Spirit, $107.17 good?


    I would be willing to buy a bottle off anyone coming from the uk as well

    Sebor comes from over seas, it's not from America. Is does have wormwood in it.

    I've never tried absinthe. What are the hallucinations like? Does it make you nauseous? I really don't like alcohol, but I do enjoy hallucinations.

    I have wormwood, but I don't know how to injest it to get the effects decribed when taking absinthe.

    The only Absinthe I have tried is the Belgian "Hapsburg" variety, which is a lethal 89.9% vol! No hallucinations, but I certainly didn't know what I had done when I woke up.

    It's illegal to sell Absinthe above 60% in the UK, but the website I bought it from delivered it in a box marked "Bottle of Chamapne", so there are ways round these things.

    It's very easy to order genuine absinthe over the net. The stuff made here has very low levels of wormwood, which is the hallucinogenic component. But the real deal isn't going to do anything more than get you very, very drunk. You're not going to hallucinate - the level of thujone (the active ingredient in wormwood) is simply too low.

    Enjoy!

    Nevermind then. I've never been drunk, and I don't ever plan to be.
