    14465.jpg Officials condemned an entire apartment building in Ft. Pierce after they found one apartment overflowing with human waste that a tenant was using to get wasted.

    A tenant in the building, Louisker Louisjuene, told police he was forced from his apartment by not only the smell but the waste that was running down his walls from the apartment upstairs, according to WPTV.

    When police opened the second floor unit, they found bottles and buckets of what appeared to be human waste. Many of the containers had been dumped out onto a mattress and the bedroom floor.

    Officers believe the wasteful renter may have been huffing "Jenkem," a hallucinogenic drug made from the gas of fermented sewage.

    The Ft. Pierce Building Department deemed all of the apartments unsafe, condemning them and forcing at least four people to move out.

    The landlord estimates the damage at at least $150,000, but he says the building may have to be demolished.

    Police are still looking for the tenant with the cost-cutting plan to get wasted.

    Smelly house forces tenants to leave

    FORT PIERCE, Fla. - The smell stayed with Louisker Louisjuene long after he left the apartment.

    It's a smell he noticed before walking inside his building on 11th Street in Ft. Pierce.

    Louisjuene noticed something foul dripping down the ceiling and running down the walls. It smelled like feces.

    Louisjuene called Ft. Pierce Police and when officers went upstairs, they discovered it was feces, possibly human.

    It had been dumped out everywhere, on the mattress, the couch and the floor.

    The crime scene report says, "The room had several dozen containers and a five gallon plastic buckets that all appeared to have contained the offensive material before someone dumped them out onto the floor and furniture in the room."

    Police believe the tenant was angry about being evicted. Landlord Oriol Netvil said the renter had been acting aggressive and threatened another tenant with a knife, so Netvil kicked him out.

    As for why the man had so many containers of excrement, officers believe it may have been a little-known and widely-speculated way to get high called Jenkem.

    Jenkem is an alleged hallucinogenic drug of noxious gas caused by the fermentation of sewage. However, many insist jenkem use is a hoax . Snopes.com, a website designed to debunk internet rumors, says "evidence that jenkem use is a significant phenomenon in the US or that the substance can even produce the effects described is scant."

    Inspectors with the Ft. Pierce Building Authority deemed the building unsafe and condemned it, forcing the handful of residents, including Louisjuene, to move out.

    He salvaged what he could from his apartment, but many of his belongings were contaminated and had to be thrown out.

    "I gotta find somewhere to move," he says. "You know, if you don't have no money right away to move, try to find something."

    Police are still looking for the tenant. The landlord estimates the damage to be at least $150,000. He says the building may have to be demolished.

    Unreal. I can't believe this crap (yes, I said it. It's done). Wow, someone would believe such an urban/4chan level myth that they would actually try to make money 'manufacturing' jenkem. Trying to imagine the amount of Indian food deliveries that house must've had to maintain their operation. Imagine a jenkem harm reduction thread on DF...'Eat Shit and Die.'

    I doubt this anything else than total bullshit.

    Not the story itself..right?

    When I first saw it I couldn't believe it was serious... So I checked a few more sources.

    What I'd like to know is...Do the cops really think this is possible, or do they just think the tenant thought it was possible?

    Or maybe a cop or the reporter just has a sense of humor.

    Either way, Occam's razor: He ruined the apartment because he was mad for being evicted.

    I've lived in this area. The police force are a very provincial lot. Most are googd 'ole boys who reside in the nicer section of town, "White City" whose residents are that color and they are very proud of it. The humor in Jenkem is lost on them. This is a very depressed area, ground zero for foreclosures.

    The most likely explanation here isn't "jenkem"...simply mental illness. However, this article will most likely convince someone that making jenkem is a good idea.

    do people really believe huffing crap has any actual psychoactive effects, (besides maybe the effects of huffing large concentrations of bacteria, which would likely just make one ill.)

    well this is one for the drug myths section, put it right up there with smoking bannana peals. anybody want to make a jenkim tech, please leave out the images jk.

    At the last place I lived, there were some older, disabled women living below me, and it came to light that the one of them was too large to get into the bathroom to use the toilet and was using buckets. They weren't the most coordinated people and seemed to have spilled more then one bucket, others were never cleaned out. Another guy who lived in a rear unit, NEVER let his two large dogs out, EVER. He too lived in utter squalor and filth.

    Neither of these households were doing this to get high.

    It blows my mind how illogical these "investigators" are.
