I drank absinthe once. It cost me £6 British pounds. It was so strong by the time I'd drunk it I was incapable of telling whether I was getting an alcohol buzz or a wormwood drug buzz from it. I've never drunk it again. You can also buy absinthe in Amsterdam , together with other more potent substances, which I haven't tried.
