Like Joan, I've never smoked a cigarette.  Us kids once or twice smoked some hollow dried weed stems for a short period of time, and once a neighbor boy gave me and my brother a regular cigarette to try.  I lit it, but blew instead of sucking it in, and blew it out if I remember correctly.  Anyway, I never got any smoke in my lungs, and I knew I wasn't supposed to smoke, so I didn't try it again.

Sk8eycat this was a hoax of the late 60s during the psycedelic revolution (Dr. Tim Leary et al.). I suspect that it got its start with the Donovan song, "Mellow Yellow" ("they call it Mellow Yellow, / They call it Mellow Yellow...."). The Berkeley Barb or one of the other underground newspapers even printed the recipe for bananoil. You were to take about six bananas and make smoothies of the flesh, scraping the oven-baked peels, discarding all of the outside peelings. Then you dried the inside of the peels and smoked it. You could smoke it all day and not get high since the Barb was putting you on. Ditto the jalapeno high. All you had to do was stick a canned jalapeno up your rump and the supposed psychotropic ingredients in the chili would send you on a trip you would not forget. Of course, you got no high, you only got a burning itching flaming asshole that made you wish you were dead. Thankfully, it only lasted for a little while. You don't guess this was the origin of the name of a famous group, do you? The Red Hot Chili Peppers?

I heard of banana peel in joints when I was younger, but never tried it. The banana peel, that is.

Chris, I have never had so much as cigarette in my mouth and don't intend to. I like my body, brain, and access to my feeling too much to put those kinds of things in my body. 

No problem at all with putting chemo poisons in my body, they had a chore to perform and I surely hope they did their job well.

Spud, you are smarter than I. Good job

Comment by Plinius on Monday

Hahaha! Did you never try one, then?

Comment by Idaho Spud on Monday

My first thought was he put them in his knee joints.  Ouch!  Then I remembered marijuana cigs were called joints.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Monday

Oh! for heaven sakes. I never even thought of that! Thanks Felaine. I am getting an education here. 

Comment by sk8eycat on Monday

Joan, I think she meant that he rolled the dried banana peel scrapings in with marijuana cigarettes. 

I remember when people were trying that....

Comment by Joan Denoo on Monday

Define "joint" Did he put dried banana peel in his body joints or in his business? 

How do you put them into your body joints? EEEEKKK!!!
