Poison Ivy is also a natural weed. Let's smoke some, right after we finish this delicious Night Shade salad!
Exactly. Did you know snake venom can make you dizzy too? These people are nuts.
I have heard that argument used so many times, and they always find a way to say that hemlock, nightshade etc. don’t count.
Conium maculatum (hemlock) is a sedative and antispasmodic, and in sufficient doses acts as a paralyser to the centers of motion. It has been recommended as an antidote to Strychnine poisoning, and in tetanus, hydrophobia, etc. On account of its peculiar sedative action on the motor centers, Hemlock juice is prescribed as a remedy in cases of undue nervous motor excitability, such as teething in children, epilepsy, cramps, in the early stages of paralysis, in spasms of the larynx and gullet, in acute mania, etc. As an inhalation it is said to relieve cough in bronchitis, whooping cough, asthma, etc.
American Poison Ivy (Rhus Toxicodendron) is one of the species of Sumachs. The bark is tonic, astringent, and antiseptic - the berries refrigerant and diuretic. The bark, in decoction or syrup, has been found useful in gonorrhea, leucorrhoea, diarrhea, dysentery, hectic fever, scrofula and profuse perspiration from debility. A diluted fluid extract affords an agreeable gargle in angina. The berries may be used in infusion in diabetes, bowel complaints, and febrile diseases; also as a gargle in ulcerations of the mouth and throat, and as a wash for ringworm, offensive ulcers, etc.
LOL! All kinds of highly toxic mushrooms give a strong “high” before your liver fails.
