Translated from Spanish
On July of 2019, the most famous porn star in Spain, nacho Vidal, an employee, a friend and fashion photographer, José Luis Abad, were all in Vidal’s vacation country house, where he was performing a shamanic ritual to abad so he could overcome his drug addictions. The ritual involved administering the substance obtained from the bufo toad or Sonora desert toad, called “god molecule”. This toad is endemic from the north of Mexico and produces hallucinogenic, DMT, used in various rituals to induce an astral travel and in therapy to overcome addictions.
However, after ingesting the substance, abad suffered a heart attack. His death was deemed accidental but after efforts of the late’s family, a warrant for Vidal and the two others was issued, but due to the pandemic interfering, it was until this Thursday that they were detained. It is worth noting that none of the presents called the emergency services at the time, even with obvious signs of seizures and asphyxia the photographer was suffering.
This kind of rituals using the toads have become widespread in many areas around the world, like Tulúm. DMT is one of nature’s most powerful hallucinogenics and its effects are unpredictable. During these rituals, it’s consumed crystallized via smoking it, the trip lasts around 10 minutes and produces an intense trip, affecting the cerebral cortex with claims of gaining a deep, introspective new way of thinking.
