Hallucinating tourists strut around town butt naked after downing drugged tea

A shocking video has captured the moment three tourists were seen strutting around a town naked after swigging a hallucinogenic drink.

Footage of the incident shows two women and a man walking around Caldas, in Medellín, Colombia, completely starkers after they allegedly ingested a ‘new age’ brew known as yagé — which is known to have psychoactive effects.

The foreign tourists were left shaking uncontrollably while being attended to in the street by the emergency services.

Reports say they were taken to a nearby medical centre and were stable enough to undergo treatment for the alleged ingestion of yagé.

Videos of the tourists have since begun circulating online as some disapproving locals took to the comments to give their opinions.

One wrote: "Only narco tourists come here."

Another said: “I saw the three of them yesterday walking around town.”

A third commented: “In one video, you can see their irregular motor behaviour. For me, they took ‘cacao sabanero’ or mushrooms.”

“Yagé must be taken with respect, with suitable and specialised people, not with anyone who offers it to you," a fourth added.

The tea-style drink is said to be similar to ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drink used as shamanic medicine by indigenous peoples in the Amazon.

Both substances reportedly originate from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine but are prepared slightly differently.

Ayahuasca is usually prepared with the bark left on the vine and is only slightly pounded before being boiled, while Yagé is prepared by first pounding off the bark to leave just the vine’s woody bone before boiling.

The Colombian authorities have previously warned visitors about consuming psychoactive medicines.

The substances are considered safe when practised with specialists who prepare them correctly and encourage physical and mental preparation beforehand.
