MD (this is a subsequent try) quite intoxicated (same amount) - although his first try also was marginal.

+ 10/3/78 10oz (280g) chewed up and then ground in mixmaster [with] lots of Saliva - water added, drunk at 2:30PM=[0:00] at[0:20 to 0:35] definitely enough intoxication to give +. gentle recovery. Intox. not too well defined - alcohol-like? Remaining 24oz ground up [with] saliva and then diluted [with] ~2 L H2o. Extracted [with] CH2Cl2 -> orange extracts. Bad milky emulsions.
