Students get fix from bananas

March 14, 1967 — Many students are seeking a high from an unlikely source — dried banana peels.

Students have taken to smoking the baked and dried scrapings of banana peels, hailing it as an affordable and legal alternative to pot.

“I heard a truck zooming outside my window much louder than usual,” one admitted banana smoker said after a recent high. “The time and my sense of balance seemed abnormal,” another said.

Not all students who tried the peels said they got a high. “I tried it and nothing happened. Bananas are only good for putting on your cereal,” one student said. “I went up on the peels,” another said. “My hands and eyes weren’t working right. But then I … had a few drinks. All the effects became confused.”
