Skullbustium

A drug whose very name suggests that it is not for the casual user, Skullbustium is the single most popular legal hallucinogen in America, likely because of its strength and appeal to machismo.

A very potent drug, Skullbustium appears to combine the effects of a large dose of LSD with those of amyl nitrate. As such, great care should be exercised in taking the drug, but of course, rarely is.

Truth or Consequences

Truth or Consequences, as the name suggests, has effects similar to the party game of the same name, with one key diffference: you can’t quit. A colourless liquid not very different from water to touch, it is often used to provoke responses that are more honest than the respondent would like.

The drug suppresses inhibitions, leading those who have taken it to speak their minds with great vehemence. As such, it is a common prank for the drug to be unknowingly administered to priests, politicians, cops and other self-appointed moral authorities. It is equally common for such pranks to end in gunfire.

Yaginol

An hallucinogen whose name suggests a connection with the Yagé plant, Yaginol is one the most popular recreational drugs of the over-populated dystopia that is Stand on Zanzibar.

Although legal to sell and use, interested parties should be aware that it is known to cuase birth defects – which is one of the more subtle ways in which the government attempts to combat over-population.

Triptine

Triptine is a basic legal hallucinogen with no particular distinguishing qualities.

Its name seems deliberately intended to evoke associations with LSD and other ‘trip’ drugs, but what little evidence exists suggests that it is weaker and tamer than these.
