toad of my dreams?

We have heard of people sniffing peanut butter, glue, hair spray, carbon dioxide, lighter fluid, household cleaners, gasoline and a few other things to get high... but never licking a toad.

This week, 21-year-old David Theiss was arrested by Kansas City police for possession of a toad with intent of licking its body in order to get high.

The Colorado toad releases venom that is powerful enough to kill a small animal... and apparently was used many years ago as a hallucinogen. Danny Snider, who is an expert in this sort of thing said, "It is not a real smart fad, but it is coming back as one." (a masterful understatement)

--One lingering question I have is... how did Mr. Theiss get caught???
