14 Crazy Ways People Get High

Sniffing Feces

A story in the New York Times in 1998 revealed that children in Zambia were getting high off of jenkem, the fumes of fermented human feces. 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.” The process is similarly described in a 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.” The effects of jenkem inhalation last for around an hour and consist of auditory and visual hallucinations for some users. In 1995, one user told a reporter it is “more potent than cannabis.” A 1999 report interviewed a user, who said, “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.” (via Wikipedia)
