Hm, but how did you come to this Jimson weed, cj? Why do you think Indio had that rolled in his yellow cigars?

Well, I don't want to give myself away,  ;) but from personal experiments lets say I don't think it was just cannabis, Indio would be more laid back and asking Nino for more nachos, could be a mix mabye of cannabis & jimson.

Hehe, fair enough my friend, fair enough. ;)

This is very interesting, but, I have one more question - Why the yellow paper? Does it go specifically with JW?

I now remember Paul McCrane's character from ''Robocop'' smoking some similar yellow shit, although I'm sure that had more to do with chemistry than with natural substances.

BTW, speaking of smoking various plants, and asking for more nachos, this is bloody true. The only thing I ever experienced during these short lived smoking sessions was hunger. Nothing more. But then again, I was never a fan of the stuff.

It's perfect timing, large one...

??? I wasn't trying to belittle you.

I really don't think you did. That's the problem of written form. I just decided to stop asking questions and do some other things more important for me at the moment... like to eat something. ;D The first sentence was sort of a joke. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I suppose I should have added a smiley.

When you put it that way, it makes perfect sense. O0

The effects of Jimson Weed sound right but the side effects don't. It sounds like Indio should feel very sick after smoking it. And the text (where is it from, BTW?) says: "the plant is used only by novices" which suggest that only youngsters that don't have real dope in their hands would smoke it.

In fact, the reason it is used is that it grows naturally and in abundance. The Jamestown settlers were the first to abuse it. As for side effects, Indio is obviously immune.

LOL! I didn't know this, but it must be a joke, right? ;D

I've heard only of children smoking various parts of corn. Like in the country, when they're not grown enough to smoke real cigarettes in front of adults, they hide and smoke corn silk or other parts of the plant secretly, pretending to be older.

As a matter of fact, that's a symbol of being a greenhorn. When someone is unexperienced in something, you say to him: ''Easy there boy, that's not corn mustache you're smoking!''

There is a mnemonic device for the physiological effects of datura/atropine intoxication: "blind as a bat, mad as a hatter, red as a beet, hot as hell, dry as a bone, the bowel and bladder lose their tone, and the heart runs alone." Another rhyme describing its effects is, "Can't see, can't spit, can't pee, can't shit."
