Well, it's easy to find out if it is dangerous.  Contact the Medicinal
Chemists at:


They've isolated the hallucinogen (and it is one) from S. Divinorum, if I
recall correctly.  They even may have a gif of it posted there.  Their
theory right now, I hear, is that it is a probe for a previously unknown
type of brain receptor.  Their reasoning: all such drugs identified to date
act through known brain receptor sites, so...

Since they design and test hallucinogens, psychedelics, and entactogens
professionally (with US Gov. funding assistance) they can probably give you
the "inside dope" on this question.  In fact, they are a non-profit
corporation.  Go figure.

By the way, Uncle Al is B.S.-ing you: a tablespoon of nutmeg in a glass of
milk won't give you convulsions unless, I suppose, the milk is tainted with
botulin toxin.
