Tussin Adventures in Charlottesville

These are links to stories of recreational tussin abuse in Charlottesville Virginia, a town now famous for the practice. The active incredient in tussin is Dextromethorphan hydrobromide, a water-soluable salt akin in certain respects both to LSD and PCP. Tussin is, in my experience, the most powerful over-the-counter mind altering drug.

the Big Fun era

Das Dafino's Diary and Intro to Tussin DM
(late November, 1995) - a former resident of the house now known as Big Fun kept a diary, and it is discovered in a pile of debris in a reforesting field. Later, Big Funsters drink Tussin DM for the first time since the establishment of Big Fun.

Tussin and a Weird Social Mix
(early December, 1995) - a Nazi skinhead, some teenage girls, a cheesy speed metal guitarist, a skater punk, and a Charlottesville underground author/publisher all rendezvous with Big Funsters for Dextromethorphan-enhanced social chaos.

Spontaneous Actual Tussin Occurrence
(mid-December, 1995) - Dextromethorphan ingestion in rural Virginia.
