A 19-year-old Missouri man admitted to spiking co-workers’ drinks with LSD because they were “too uptight” and “needed to have better energy”.
What’s the fastest way to change your co-workers’ mood and help them relax? Well, according to a young Enterprise Rent-A-Car employee, lacing their drinks with strong mood-altering drugs without telling them is one way of going about it.
Two employees at an Enterprise Rent-A-Car office in Arnold, Missouri, needed to be hospitalized last week after reporting symptoms like dizziness and uncontrollable shaking, for no apparent reason.
Their manager called an ambulance, but also notified the police about the situation, after seeing another member of her staff holding a dropper and messing with everyone’s drinks.
Confronted by the officers, the man nonchalantly admitted to spiking his colleagues' drinks with LSD, because they had “negative energy”.
The car rental office manager told police that the 19-year-old man was “acting weird” and that she saw him holding a small dropper and messing with her water jug as well as the drinks of her other colleagues.
She didn’t drink from the container, but, for some reason, didn’t inform the other employees about the 19-year-old’s bizarre behaviour.
It was only when two of her co-workers reported feeling dizzy and shaky that she realized he may have put something in their drinks.
According to a police report obtained by the Jefferson County Leader, the man admitted to lacing his co-workers’ drinks with LSD because “they were too uptight, and they needed to have better energy”.
The offender has not been charged yet, as police are waiting for the lab test results, but he faces charges of second-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance.
Lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, is used mainly as a recreational drug and is considered one of the most powerful mood-changing chemicals. Its effects include altered thoughts, feelings, and awareness of one’s surroundings, and can last for up to 12 hours.
