Police in southwest Idaho say teenagers are experimenting with a hallucinogenic plant common in the region and that multiple teens have ended up in the hospital.
Ada County Sheriff's Detective Ryan Pacheco says the teens are eating seeds from Moonflowers, a plant often found along canals and irrigation banks.
Authorities say the seeds produce a sense of euphoria followed by hallucinations, fever, nausea, dizziness and short-term memory loss.
Pacheco says the symptoms can last for days and can lead to bizarre, violent behavior.
Of course Moonflower is another word for Datura, Jimson Weed, Nightshade, etc., the brugmansia
family of tropane deliriants, containing atropine, scopalamine, etc. This stuff will drive you mad; not for kicks and giggles.
