As for Jimson Weed, Datura, Thorn Apple ( I am fairly certain they are the same thing, it just has many names) they have been shown to have dissociative/hallucinogenic properties though the experience is often cosidered quite uncomfortable and it is very easy to take too much when using it for this purpose(Datura or whatever u choose to call it is a member of the nightshade family of plants which does indeed include many deadly posions, so it truly wouldnt be wise to partake in this plant).
Also, Mescal Beans should b added to the list if they are not already on it under a different name. Mescal Beans are not to be confused with the pscyhoactive substance Mescaline or the "mescaline buttons" that are harvested from the peyote cactus. They are two totally different chemicals! Mescal Beans can kill you while mescaline has some admitted religious value and is considered relativly safe.
