Nice. I've used many psychedelics extensively, from lsd, pop, ketamine, dmt, research chemicals, salvia, 2cb, etc. Joined a ayahuasca church, actually grew up in the NAC. But never tried datura, brugmansia, or jimson weed.
Years ago I met a Mexican hottie on retreat. She had a datura plant tattooed on her arm. I asked her if she had ever taken it. She said no, she did lots of yage, but not datura, yet.
Years later I met a young kid, maybe 25, who smoked datura everyday. "In small amounts " he said. Asked if I wanted to smoke with him. "Nah, too scary ". He said it wasn't that bad, I said I would call him if i changed my mind. A month later he hung himself with his dog's chain, while walking his dog. He let his dog go free, then hung himself in his backyard.
I don't know what happened, but I can live without knowing what datura told him.
Much respect to the plant and the spirit. Where I lived, the plant grew wild, everywhere. Lots of kids, and older street punk types would take it all the time. Every month, some went nuts, and either attacked someone, or hurt themselves, or went totally nuts.
I have bad trips, but never wanted to jump off a building, or cut my dick off. Maybe someday I'll try it. Probably I'll stick with the good stuff .
Oh, one more story. This was just 8 years ago. I was living with my girlfriend and her mom in new Mexico. She was 40 , her mom like 70. We were going to see a medicine man, and the mom asked for us to bring back a peyote plant. Like the button with the root and everything. We asked the medicine man, and he said, "well, I can't give you that" ( he had thousands) "but take this datura back for her ". She was like "okay " and we did. Her mom took one look and said "take it off out land and plant it, and take care of it, but that's it. "
