Famous Hoaxes- Musa sapientum Bananadine

According to “The Berkeley Barb” an underground counterculture magazine circulated in the 1960’’s (and later “The Anarchists cookbook”) “Musa sapientum Bananadine” (or simply Bananadine) is a drug extracted from a Banana with supposed psychoactive effects.

 In reality, the drug was pure fiction, used as an example to pose the theoretical question of what course of action the U.S government would take if it was discovered that preparing the skin of a banana and smoking it would transform it into a drug with psychoactive effects similar to that of Opium.
