Wear gloves, it's poisonous! Known in the US as jimsonweed

It is only really poisonous if you eat the fruit. Just handling it is not a problwm for most people. I just pull it out and bin it, no gloves and I am still alive(just!).

Ah, thanks Boggy, I remember it featured in an episode of CSI☺

It did indeed. When used as Jimson weed it is an hallucinatory drug.

Owdboggy! Is that the voice of experience?!

16 Sep, 2018


No, that was what happened in the episode of CSI. The boys who took it died of heat exhaustion running away from the visions (if I remember it properly)

I was joking. Though the more you deny it the more suspicious I'm getting☺ Are you sure you've never pumped techno music into your garden & danced the boggy dance in your pants?
