Use them in baths and potpourri to boost your mood wherever you go. Use the inside of orange peels to whiten your teeth. Simply rub the inside, cleaned part of an orange peel against your teeth to brighten your smile. Rinse with water afterwards to reduce the acid in your mouth. (I could not resist this classic pun.) Do you know other ways to use orange peels?
AUBURN — Inmates inside the Androscoggin County Jail are losing their peels. Kitchen workers have been directed to peel bananas before they're served to inmates. The inmates have begun secretly drying the peels and smoking them. "It's been a problem for six or eight months," said Lt. Inmates have been using smuggled lighters or jury-rigged electrical outlets to spark their fruity cigars. Because smoking is not allowed in jails, any smoking material is considered contraband. "They're doing it to get some kind of high, but all my research says there is none," Chute said. "It doesn't work." An Internet search on smoking such peels turned up lots of entries, most suggesting that there's nothing more potent than a dash of vitamin C to be harnessed. In 2012, the New York Times did a story tracing the legend to a hippie hoax that even invented a fictional LSD-like drug, "bananadine." "With us, it started with bananas," Chute said.
During a routine check, guards discovered a tobacco-like smell and traced it to the charred peels. "It's really pretty strong." When the supply of bananas stopped, smokers turned to oranges. "These inmates have all day, every day, to think this stuff up," Chute said. Sheriff Guy Desjardins compared the practice with instances in which inmates hid food, which became fermented and was ingested. Any inmate found to be smoking fruit — or anything else — faces punishment that could include seclusion or loss of good time credits on a sentence. Post Extras: Lord_McLovin mad scientist on shrooms.

Later on I read a book by Paul Krassner and he admitted to writing that as satire in some magazine and it went "viral" pre-internet and became somewhat mythical because of the cookbook.

Are you concerned about passing an employment drug test? When and how are job applicants and employees tested? Employers might conduct drug and alcohol tests as a condition of employment, randomly, or because of an accident or injury. They might also perform tests because an employee appears to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol on the job, if unexcused absence from work or lateness is an issue, or if performance appears to be impacted by drug or alcohol abuse. So, what can you do if you are concerned about passing a drug test? First, you need to understand your rights as laid out by state and federal law and what you can expect if you’re screened for drug use. Employer Drug Tests During an Employment Screenings. Most state laws allow private employers to screen job applicants for drug use, provided that they give notice that drug testing is part of the hiring process, use state-certified labs and screen all applicants for the same job.
However, state laws may restrict the way testing is carried out. For example, some states may allow screening only once the applicant has been given notice about the drug-testing policy and the employer has extended a conditional offer of employment. See your state’s laws to determine what’s allowed in your area. Some employers may even be required to screen prospective employees for drug use before extending an offer of employment. Federal agencies like the Department of Transportation and the Department of Defense are required to conduct regular drug testing.
