OPIUM POPPIES: The seeds of the potent Papaver somniferum, or traditional opium poppy, are known in America as bread poppy. Most seeds found on bagels in Starbucks and in grocery stores as poppy seed are loaded with raw opiates. Two bagels are enough to trigger a positive drug test for opiates. Opiates are narcotics, which include morphine, opium and heroin, and these plants also are the literal basis for the huge opiate pain-killer market in America. Interestingly, illegal raw opium seed and pod use have killed only three Americans in the last 40 years, but the legal, doctor-administered form of the opiate-based drugs (Oxycontin, etc.) kill approximately 40.000 Americans per year. When you soak raw poppy seeds, which you can buy at Whole Foods or in most Mediterranean food stores, they release their opiates into the water. When you cook the pods like bulk tea, it makes a bitter opiate tea, strong enough to kill people. Nearly ALL bread poppy seeds will grow opium poppy pods. Seeds are legal, opiate drugs are legal, but pods are illegal. The government does NOT want you to grow your own meds. You must pay Big Pharma big bucks to end pain. Only the big drug companies are allowed to grow illegal opium poppies... and sell their deadly extracts!
ABORTION: Pennyroyal has been used for millennia as a morning after pill. Not recommended.
CANCER: Both Cannabis and Pau D'Arco have been proven in foreign studies to both prevent and cure cancer. Both are used in hospitals in other countries for cancer treatment. We turned cancer into a big business.
SUICIDE: The lovely hemlock plant, Conium maculatum, will humanely kill you, should you have a horrible terminal illness. Just a quarter ounce of seeds will induce death by relaxation. Literally. However, all parts of the plant taste vile.
LSD or LSA: All morning glory seeds contain a drug called LSA, cousin to LSD. Commercial packs of plant seeds were coated with poison back in the 1970s to prevent people from eating them and going on long, strange trips with the Grateful Dead. Names like Heavenly Blue and Pearly Gates hint at the entheogenic properties of these plants.
MESCALINE: We all know that peyote contains the hallucinogenic drug mescaline, which is why it it illegal, but the same mescaline can be found in the very common San Pedro cacti, and the tall Peruvian Torch cactus. Both of these cacti are legal, and can be used just like peyote.
DMT: A powerful hallucinogen, DMT is ten times stronger than LSD and is found in literally hundreds of plants worldwide. The South American Mimosa hostilis root is famous for its DMT content and has been targeted by Federal authorities for interception and confiscation. Next best is root bark from the invasive Acacia confusa in Hawaii, not subject to customs issues. Yopo and Cebil trees can be found growing wild in Hawaii and Puerto Rico and its seeds are also rich in DMT. One North American analog is Phalaris arindinacea, a perennial grass that thrives in the USA and can be juiced like wheat grass for a real wild trip down the proverbial rabbit hole with Alice.
MAGIC MUSHROOMS: The many species of Psilocybin mushrooms all contain hallucinogenic chemicals. They can be found growing wild all over North America, and can be easily grown indoors from legally purchased spawn. These shrooms have been used by native shaman for literally thousands of years.
DIVINER'S SAGE: Another short-term hallucinogen, Salvia divinorum will take you out of your body with just one toke, similar to the DMT plants. This sage is illegal or controlled in half of all states in the USA. These tropical plants are easy to grow, but like mimosa, one frost will kill them.
DATURA: Daturas all contain atropine, which is used in medicines for motion sickness. Atropine is a natural antidote to deadly nerve poisons. However, a hundred seeds can kill you without mercy. Two seeds eaten before bedtime can induce wild dreams and out of body experiences in dream land.
CASTOR BEAN: Castor beans are lovely tropical plants, but its Latin name Ricinus gives us a hint to the seeds being the main way to make Ricin, a deadly poison (made famous in a Japan terror attack and the TV series Breaking Bad).
BELLADONNA: Favored by witches for centuries, a tincture of belladonna will induce a vivid out-of-body experience. However, too much can kill you. The berries are tasty and can fool you into death by deliciousness.
DEPRESSION: Saint John's Wort is widely used in Europe for depression. But Big Pharma cannot make money off a common plant, so in America, it is degraded by physicians and the medical industry.
COMFREY: Comfrey contains allantoin, a remarkable cell regenerator. Physicians again point out its problems with internal use, but comfrey heals everything from broken bones to scabs and cuts.
SEAWEED: Sea vegetables, like kelp and dulse, are the richest source of diverse trace minerals in the world. Added here as alternative nutritional info. Eat them daily. I put powdered kelp in a salt shaker and shake it on everything.
GOD made all these plants for a reason. Men are trying to control God and usurp the magic of plants.
