Inhaling Fermented Pee and Poop to Get High – Bringing New Meaning to “Now That’s Some Good Sh*t!”

Share this merde!

Among the most bizarre of news this week is that police in Florida have circulated a memo about jenkem – also known as Leroy Jenkems, butthash, winnie, runners, fruit from crack pipe, might, and waste. And, oh yes, also known as ‘shit’. Because, you see, the recipe for making jenkem is take some feces, take some urine, combine, let ferment, and inhale. Eeeww! Giving new meaning – in all senses – to the term “now that’s some good shit!”

Of course, this was quickly denounced as the “Jenkem Urband Legend” – but is it really an urban legend? Well, no, at least not with regards to the main facts – and yes, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Intelligence Bureau really did issue this bulletin.

The bulletin reads, in part, “On 09/19/07 Cpl. Disarro received and email from a concerned parent regarding a new drug called “Jenkem”. The parent advised their child learned about this drug through various conversations with several students at Palmetto Ridge High.

Jenkem originated in Africa and other third world countries by fermenting raw sewage to create a gas which is inhaled to achieve a high. Jenkem is now a popular drug in American Schools.

Jenkem is a homemade substance which consists of fecal matter and urine. The fecal matter and urine are placed in a bottle or jar and covered most commonly with a balloon. The container is then placed in a sunny area for several hours or days until fermented. The contents of the container will separate and release a gas, which is captured in the balloon. Inhaling the gas is said to have a euphoric high similar to ingesting cocaine but with strong hallucinations of times past.

Once ingested the onset of the high takes approximately 10 seconds with the most severe hallucinations happening in approximately 20 minutes. Several articles indicate that the subject immediately passes out after ingesting the gas then regains a magical/hallucinogenic state within seconds of regaining consciousness.”

This has been a public service announcement brought to you by the aptly named Mange Merde.

Oh, by the way, the memo also says that “All subjects who used the Jenkem disliked the taste of sewage in their mouth and the fact that the taste continued for several days.”

No shit?

P.S. By the way, according to SNOPES, the bulletin and the facts contained therein are true, but the fact that the use of jenkem is on the rise in Florida, or indeed anywhere, is false.

P.P.S. If you want to read the bulletin for yourself, you can download the jenkem bulletin here in PDF format.

  1. Are you fucking serious?

    i honestly would like to meet the deranged junkie who is fermenting his shit and piss and inhaling it.
    that would be a person i would like to punch in the face. just for being a dumbass.

  2. I remember the first time i “jenked” as they call it. The euphoria felt emulated feelings of longing and sexual frustration. Ever since “jenking” i havent been able to hold a steady relationship.The “Huffing my own shit” as I used to call it became too big a part in me life. Jenking will always be a part of my life regardless of my need to stop.
