CASPER - Someone has been doing some trippy baking at Casper College. The community college is warning students and staff not to eat food of unknown origin after drug-laced bread turned up on campus.
A student returned to his vehicle Monday morning to discover three mystery loaves left on the front seat, a college spokeswoman said.
The student alerted campus security, which performed a field test indicating the presence of the psychedelic drug LSD. Further testing by Casper Police found the same.
"It's very odd," said college spokeswoman Lisa Icenogle. "I've never heard of LSD on campus, and I've been here 19 years."
LSD is a synthetic substance derived from ergot fungus which grows on rye grain.
Casper Police did not immediately return a call to inquire whether its testing can distinguish between LSD and naturally occurring ergot fungus.
Casper College spokesman Rich Fujita said campus security's field test "is not intended to be definitive."
"It's just a preliminary investigative tool to determine if closer consideration by Casper Police is warranted," Fujita wrote in an email to 9NEWS.
