Bananadine

"Still others argue that the book should be banned because much of its content is... well...crap. Powell wrote the Anarchist Cookbook when he was just 19, and much of its information is inaccurate. For example, the cookbook provides instructions for extracting a chemical called bananadine—"a mild, short-lasting psychedelic"—from banana peels. Bananadine (http://www.infoshop.org/anarchist-cookbook-frequently-asked-questions/)
does not exist; it was a fabrication written in the underground newspaper the Berkeley Barb in an attempt to get authorities to ban bananas. Powell, however, believed it to be true." -Matt Davis
