Naked 'Pirate' arrested in NZ
September 27, 2004


A naked man standing on a roof looking through a rolled-up magazine thought he was a pirate, New Zealand police said.

Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken, of Dunedin police, said the man appeared to be affected by the hallucinogenic drug datura and his bizarre behaviour continued once at the police station.

"He believed he was a pirate at sea and was using a rolled-up magazine as a telescope," he said.

The 28-year-old man was charged with disorderly behaviour after being taken down from the roof of a South Dunedin building.

Datura is a deliriant... nothing would have saved the situation.

Here's a different (whack) version of that article. I read that days ago, and read this one I'm posing today. Leading news and information station my ass. Is Datura really a Class A drug? "ingesting a plant containing the toxin mescaline - the active ingredient in some common garden plants"
The TOXIN mescaline? I've never heard of mescaline just growing freely in some of our common plants (shit, if that's true, then which ones are they?) and don't think it's likely that anyone would be still tripping that hard after 48 hours.
They should check before they get the drugs mixed up. Last thing we need is MORE people thinking that mescaline is toxic and will make you trip for 48 hours and go insane thinking they're a goddamn pirate.

http://stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3047052a4560,00.html

A man who believed he was a pirate at sea when he was actually a prisoner in the Dunedin police cells has been admitted to Dunedin Hospital after his drug-induced pyschosis failed to wear off.


The man was found naked on the roof of a South Dunedin building at 10am on Sunday and taken to the Dunedin Police Station.

Police inquiries have revealed that on Saturday the man drank the juice of a garden plant, a substance which is a Class A drug, Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken said.

While in custody he appeared to believe he was a pirate at sea and was using a rolled-up magazine as a telescope.

Twenty-four hours later, 48 hours after taking the substance, the man was still heavily affected by the drug.

"He was exhibiting quite bizarre behaviour overnight. He appeared quite agitated and excited."

A medical team was called to the station to examine the man and a decision was made to admit him to Dunedin Hospital.

"There are concerns among the medical experts that these types of substances can cause permanent or semi-permanent psychosis," Mr Aitken said.

He urged other people to learn from the man's misfortunes.

"If he thought he was a bird rather than a pirate when he was on that roof the consequences could have been disastrous."

The man was due to appear in Dunedin District Court this week charged with disorderly behaviour, but that date would be reassessed.

National Poison Centre specialist Lisa Matthews said ingesting a plant containing the toxin mescaline - the active ingredient in some common garden plants - was like playing "Russian roulette".

"You are not going to know how much the dose is or how you will respond to it and these sorts of psychosis-induced disorders can occur with small amounts the first time it is taken," she said

The man in hospital was an extreme case and might be suffering from post-hallucinogen perception disorder, which included perception changes, anxiety, panic, phobias and depression.

"Doctors will be able to determine if it is the effects of the drug or one of the long-term effects," Ms Matthews said.

Other chronic effects were prolonged psychotic reactions, similar to schizophrenia, and flashbacks which had been reported to happen up to 10 times a day, most common after 18 months after use.

Man I sure hate it when I'm scouting for ships on the roof in the buff with a magazine telescope and landlubbers try and lock me up.

As Bill Hicks might say "One less idiot in the world. Damn."

Check it out, I emailed Lisa Matthews:

Subject: RE: 'Pirate' in hospital after ingesting garden plant

Hi, Would you mind confirming that the guy did in fact ingest mescaline?
It seems to me that it was more likely some sort of solanaceous plant containing atropine, scopolamine etc.
Thanks
zeta

----------------------------------------------

Hi, zeta,

Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately we at the National Poison Centre
were not privy to the medical records of the patient, and were contacted
directly by the reporter with the ODT. Upon hearing the story, I initially
thought the plant involved would be something like Datura, but was informed
by the reporter that anticholinergic compounds had been suspected, but
subsequently ruled out, and that the patient has ingested the juice of a
succulent cactus. She then asked me to comment directly on the toxicity of a
mescaline containing cactus.

So unfortunately, I myself, am not certain of the exact substance ingested
by the patient, and in fact it may not have been determined for certain at
all, beyond the ingestion of this "succulent-cactus juice"

Thank you for enquiry,

Regards
Lisa Matthews

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
