Modern science has officially proved that smoking bananas, can produce similar symptoms/effects to smoking marijuana. There are certain sugars and related compounds that exist in both bananas and marijuana. Just saying.

In Marijuana, the primary chemical that gets user's high when smoked is Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC). When consumed, it produces psychoactive effects on the brain, and releases dopamine to the brain, which should be noted that dopamine is not the cause of the psychoactive effects of Marijuana.

If bananas can produce the same psychoactive effects on the brain as Marijuana, it would have to have chemicals similar to Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. Known chemicals that produce the same effects as Marijuana are found in drugs like K2, commonly referred to as it's street name "Spice" which clearly says "NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION" which only leads me to believe that these chemicals are not found in the very edible food, bananas.

There are similar compounds (H2CO5P6 for example) in both marijuana and bananas. When smoked, said compounds are released from both substances causing the inhaler to receive similar effects.

1. It seems this idea was first introduced in the Anarchist Cookbook, the so called intoxicating agent is referred to as Bananadine. It is completely FICTIONAL.
2. Although I cannot find the actual study, not that I looked very hard, some sites refer to a NY University study that was done. The studies found that there are no intoxicating chemicals in bananas.
3. If you some anything and inhale smoke you will get light headed/high because you are oxygen deprived, much like some people like to be choked during intercourse to give them such a "high."

Conclusion... Don't smoke banana peels.

Well...smoking anything could "get you high" because of the lack of oxygen that goes to your brain during the smoking of anything combustible. So...
