  1. I would presume that since is that Datura is listed as a toxic narcotic, it would be impossible to obtain, even online?

    • Not at all. It is common throughout the southwest. I have seen it growing in parking lots as far east as TN and elsewhere. Many a garden boasts a cultivated stand of Datura. Its tough, easy to grow from seed, and absolutely gorgeous. But it belongs in the hands of seasoned practitioners, that’s for sure. It is widely used by tribal shamans all over the northern hemisphere.
