Don't eat the Moonflower seeds

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.

both of my boys are in the ICU tonight because of this shit. I haven't seen it, they were at their uncle's house when they took it. But I am very worried, I rode with my youngest to the hospital, his brother needed to be taken by ambulance, with police.

So, I take it the article is referring to datura ?I've read one or two reports/speculations of the ipomoea moonflower containing LSA, but too little information out there to convince me, plus those symptoms seem to fit better with datura than LSA

Thanks for the clarification. These look like Datura:

Moonflower is also a common name for a white flowering vine (Ipomoea alba) which is not Datura inoxia (jimsonweed, devil's weed), nor is this vine in the nightshade family.
This vine is the plant in the picture accompanying this post. Daturas (whichever species) have a more elongated leaf, larger flowers and are not vines. The moonflower vine, is much more closely related to morning glories.

Yeah, if you're going for the locally growing herbs and mushrooms it's probably a good idea to do your homework a bit.
Hell, it is no matter what you're trying really.
