||Like many things in the Anarchists Cookbook, this is total bullshit. You can not get high from smoking peanut shells. Your friend was either fooling himself or jerking your chain. There is no credible evidence to support this myth, and believe me, if people could get high from smoking peanuts (or peanut shells, or peanut butter) this would be very popular.|
The Anarchists Cookbook only has value as a humorous novelty book. Most if not all of the drug recipes in it do not work, and some of them may produce potentially poisonous results. The explosive instructions include many very dangerous errors which could easily get someone killed if they tried to follow them. There has even been the suggestion that the book was written by a government agent trying to deliberately spread dangerous misinformation to the "underground". Do not take anything in this book seriously... chances are anything you try from the book will not work (at best) or injure/kill you (at worst).
