Syrian Horse Surgery using Hashish

In the 1851 book 'Eight Years in Syria, Palestine and Asia Minor' by author Frederick Arthur Neale, he describes a surgery on a horse in Syria between 1842 and 1850. While the surgery was not ground breaking, the anesthesia was... Hashish!




"In Acre, there is a plentiful supply of Turkish veterinary surgeons; and about the most curious sight I ever witnessed was a horse under treatment by these practitioners.

First they threw it on the ground, by tying its four feet or hoofs so closely together, that it became as helpless as an infant; then a tight bandage was placed over the nose and mouth, only leaving sufficient space for the animal to breathe. A Turkish pipe, containing tobacco, bang, hashish, cuscus, and other narcotics, was inserted in one of the nostrils, and a spark being placed upon the bowl, the horse involuntarily inhaled the stupefying smoke; which had the effect, after a very short period, of rendering it unconscious of what was going on.

Then the skill of surgery was brought into play, and the fetlock of the poor brute being laid open, a perfect hive of worms, deposited by a fly, common in some parts of the desert between Damascus and Baghdad, was duly extracted. The wound was closed up with pitch sticking-plaster, and the bands being unloosed, buckets of cold water were thrown over the horse; who quickly revived. The foot was now placed in a sling, and a few days afterwards, so effective had been the operation, the horse was fit to pursue its daily avocations."

- Eight Years in Syria, Palestine and Asia Minor' by author Frederick Arthur Neale

High Fashion

Les Lalanne are a French artist duo who happen to be a husband and wife team. The Husband, François-Xavier, likes to sculpt animals while the wife Claude Lalanne has a passion for the plant.

In 1970, Claude would sculpt a beautiful piece of jewelry in bronze of a single leaf from nature. Making this jewelry high fashion, the leaf just happened to be cannabis...

The title for her beautiful piece of high fashion, 'Collier Cannabis'.

In 2016 Claude reintroduced her design of Collier Cannabis at a art show in New York City to a new generation of red eyes...

I'm still searching for that fountain of youth, one 'fountain' at a time


"Water Pipe, Common Among Smokers In Their Homeland, Described By Visitors From Turkey; Turkish visitors describe smoker's pipe for Mrs. Tinkler (right) and her daughter, during a visit at the Tinkler home. Several of the girls said they enjoy shopping in U.S. stores and restaurants most in visit.; Denver department stores are the greatest. American meals the smallest and rodeos the wildest.; These are some of the opinions expressed by several young women from Turkey who are visiting the United States under the Experiment in International Living program" Denver, Colorado August 21, 1963
