THE GUARDIA CIVIL have arrested a couple in the Alicante municipality of Callosa del Segura for allegedly performing rituals with illegal psychotropic substances
As part of the Guardia Civil’s ‘Operation Bufox’, officers have arrested a 42 and 38-year-old couple in Callosa del Segura, Alicante, who had been performing rituals with illegal psychotropic substances, such as ayahuasca or bufo toad scales.
The effects of inhaling the amphibian venom became more publicly known as a result of the controversy which hit the news involving the porn actor Nacho Vidal last year, who was accused of a reckless murder while performing this shamanic ritual together with the photographer, Jose Luis Abad, who collapsed after twenty seconds and subsequently died.
