The negative energy for those who’ve worked in office jobs can often be overwhelming. It can be present among coworkers, but also some managers can’t stop breathing down the worker’s necks.
There are numerous ways of how to release this condition in working environments. Some workers like easier ways of solving this problem, while others can be really proactive by organizing an office party or bringing some home-baked sweets to their coworkers to save the sinking ship.
However, the ideas of fighting negativity sometimes can be very strange, such this one of a teenage male employee (19-year-old) at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Arnold, Missouri. He decided to make his coworkers being high on a hallucinogenic substance.
The police announced that he gave a few of his unsuspecting coworkers a big dose of LSD in a bid to address what he called their “negative energy.” According to Arnold Police Lt. Clinton Wooldridge, the police were notified after two employees became dizzy and started shaking but didn’t know why.
According to the Leader, the teenager’s 27-year-old manager saw that he was “acting weird” and had been holding a water dropper and was “messing with” her water jug. She also noticed that he did it with the two employees’ water bottles.
Both employees, who were ages 23 and 24, were taken to urgent care before being transferred to a local hospital.
The culprit admitted to the police that he dosed the water bottles with acid and also putting some LSD into a third employee’s coffee. He told officers that his coworkers “were too uptight, and they needed to have better energy.”
The police experts, including the task force commander Sgt. Tony Dennis of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department noted that the workers’ symptoms were consistent with reactions to LSD.
“You’re going to have an increased heart rate, temperature, higher blood pressure. It’s been described as causing the shakes or tremors.”
According to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) is a hallucinogen that is “one of the most powerful mood-changing chemicals.”
Widespread researches were taken to investigate its potential treatment for depression and a range of mood disorders. The findings show that in large doses, it can cause distorted sensory awareness, an elevated mood or euphoria, and hallucinations. All these reactions correlate with boosted serotonin levels in the brain.
Many people have testified the positive outcome of their experimentation with LSD, by taking it in a safe, supportive, and aesthetically pleasing environment with a clear idea of what to expect. However, there are risks of taking it if it is a fake acid and by doing it in an unsafe way.
The teenager who did it with his coworkers was placed under arrest and he is facing possible charges of second-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance.
