Morning Glory seeds contain LSA (Lysergic Acid Amide) and other 
precursors of LSD (d-lysergic acid diethylamide).  However the seeds also 
contain many other alkaloids, so while one can take it fro its 
psychedelics effects, one will have to cope with the stomach uneasiness, 
vomiting, diarrhea, etc. that goes along with a Morning Glory "trip".
