Jimson Weed

Datura stramonium

Description:

Trumpet-shaped flowers on a low-growing shrub.

Notes:

All parts of Datura plants contain dangerous levels of the tropane alkaloids atropine, hyoscyamine and scopolamine which are classified as deliriants, or anticholinergics. There is a high risk of fatal overdose amongst uninformed users, and many hospitalizations occur amongst recreational users who ingest the plant for its psychoactive effects. (Wikipedia)
