Speaking of trippy, anyone heard of moon flowers? Friends have them and said the seeds are on the controlled substance list for the school system b/c the kids smoke them and hallucinate. And the plants grow like weeds and produce MANY seeds. Anyone? Sandals?

Well they are refering to Morning Glory seeds, a specific specises of it.
Erowid is good for looking up such things
Moon Flowers --->http://www.erowid.org/ask/ask.cgi?ID=3001
Morning Glory Seeds--> http://www.erowid.org/plants/morning...ng_glory.shtml
how they're harvested-->http://www.erowid.org/ask/ask.cgi?ID=1785


When they smoke morning glory seeds they are evaporating LSA off of the seeds (Lysergic Acid Amide)

Here is the info on what is in morning glory seeds are what they do, http://www.erowid.org/plants/morning...y_basics.shtml


Of course this info is available for harm reduction education purposes.
But the site is the defacto site for proper information on substances.

Bought a tree stand and a new bow with one days worth one time.

Not to mention they taste great. Little earthy, but great cooked right. You have to get them before they go to seed...or spore or whever though.

Cool information. Thanks. That's them. They gave us a seed pod, but the fact that they're listed as an invasive species and that I already have trouble controling the damn russian olives that want to concur my woods means I won't be planting these seeds.
