Beer festival bosses have busted a fake cocaine to be sold by barmaids in low cut traditional dresses at this year's Oktoberfest in Germany.
Businessman Wolfgang Stanek says he invented 'Wiesn Cocaine' - or festival cocaine - specially for the event in Munich, which opens later this month.
The sealed 5 GBP-a-time sachets contain nothing stronger than sugar and menthol, which Stanek claims give a natural high when punters snort it through a supplied straw.
He'd planned to sell the concoction to festival goers using busty models dressed in traditional dirndl dresses with tightly laced corsets.
But organisers want to ban the product, claiming it would distract from their beer and cause problems for stewards and police looking for real drug users.
"We don't want cocaine, nor do we want a sugar mixture which looks like cocaine. We just want guests to enjoy our beer nothing else," said a spokesman.
Gutted Stanek said: "We are anti drugs. Our mixture just gives drunks a little shake to wake them up."
