1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Research scientists have used many animal species in investigating mind-altering drugs, but it may come as a surprise to learn that animals in the wild — from starlings to reindeer — also make use of psychoactive substances of their own accord.

    One species which is rumored to be psychoactive are Rock Blooms (Parmotrema menyamyaense)... There is very little information on this other than it can be smoked or made into a tea.

    From the sounds of it, there are other as of yet unidentified specie(s) of potentially psychoactive... Again, much of this information is unsubstantiated (so take with a grain of salt), and there isn't much out there on this subject, although it is still rather interesting...

    I've seen squirrels eating rotting/fermenting Jack O'Lanterns near Halloween & act wicked drunk, and they seem to like it & go back for more (though it's hard to tell if it's really the same squirrel). There may even be a video on youtube of drunken squirrels. *giggle*
