29 people—who reportedly practice holistic and naturopathic medicine—were found in varying states of agony. The victims, aged between 24 and 56, were “suffering from delusions, breathing problems, racing hearts and cramps, some in life-threatening conditions, according to the public broadcaster NDR”.
According to a report from USNews, the incident took place at a homeopathic conference on Saturday in Handeloh, Germany. At 2:25 p.m., an emergency call for help was placed from the convention center, and within 90 minutes, 150 first responders arrived to an absolutely horrifying scene.
So while it’s true 29 attendees at a holistic conference were sickened by the ingestion of a meth-based drug known as Aquarust, those attendees were likely not all “holistic doctors.” Moreover, the circumstances under which they ingested the substance remained unconfirmed; authorities believed it most likely victims were misled as to the nature of a substance before they ingested it. No credible reports offered anything in the way of evidence (or even suggestion) that the conference attendees were deliberately poisoned in an attempt to do them harm.

It looks they did this to themselves for whatever reason. It wasn't a "poisoning" by some super evil secret cabal.
The idea that a bunch of Holistic and naturopathic healers would “experiment” with a drug is so ridiculous that it does not even warrant “BS”. I have been involved with these people and they would not even take stuff from someone else’s garden they are so conscious of contaminants. Another disinformation ploy, to demean alternative medicine.
Anyone who seriously thinks that they intentionally drugged themselves on this needs to check themselves. These are holistic health practitioners, in the middle of a Homeopathic Conference! Do you honestly think that 29 of them would suddenly decide that taking one of the most intense psychedelics was a great idea at around 1 o’clock in the afternoon?
2C-E is not the kind of drug you can find easily and is one that most people have never heard of, I’d be willing to bet less than 5 of those 29 actually had ever even possibly heard of it (that’s being generous). This stinks of foul play.

In a statement, it said none of its representatives took hallucinogens during the “incident” in Handeloh. “The organisers of this obscure conference are unknown to us and such events will not be tolerated by our Association,” a spokesperson said. “Unfortunately, the conference in Handeloh has severely damaged the image of the alternative medicine profession…and we have clarified that such acts are not in the spirit of natural therapy, and contradict our values both morally and legally. “The Association of German Healing Practitioners (Heilpraktikers) detests such misdemeanours.”

This is what happens to people who believe in pseudoscientific nonsense. No doubt they swallowed the stuff thinking it would boost their immune systems or fine-tune their chakras or something.

So an emergency call of dozens poisoned is answered an hour and a half later? ..
