The ‘active’ ingredient was a form of synthetic codeine. I knew a guy back in my High School years who aquired the nickname ‘Robie’ from the practice of downing entire bottles.
I worked one summer at a resort cottage in Wisconsin’s upper penninsula. One night a group of my cow-orkers decided that they wanted to give it a try. I wasn’t particularly interested, so I became the designated ‘shepherd’. If you want an idea of what it was like, rent the movie Young Guns and fast forward to the payote scene. They each chugged a bottle before leaving the cottages. Two of the guys threw up almost immediately and tried to convince the others that it was an incredible experience in itself. We then went out to a local golf course and let everyone play out their experience under the stars. The reason I compare it to payote, is that everyone went on their own trip (IMHO based on their personality). One girl spent most of the night marveling at the intricacy of tree leaves. One of the guys kept dissapearing into the distance, only to run up to the group screaming ecstatically and then running off again. By far, the favorite past-time was to join hands and run around as fast as possible.
The downside was that none of them were able to sleep a wink for two days, the ‘high’ lasted longer than 14 hours and some of the hallucinations weren’t altogether pleasant.
