    Right... first they use pounds to measure weight, then grams... then they include aloe-vera in the list of "narcotics"??

    EDIT: Upon inspection of the original article, "pounds" seems to be a mistranslation. But STILL!

    I think the first mention of "pounds" might have just been a translation thing, it probably was still kilo's.

    The aloe-vera, however, was not. :confused:

    This is fucked up. It probably started with the Peyote then they just threw in the rest to get a better conviction. But is San Pedro and related cactus really illegal or is this just Portugal? Swims friend always thought San Pedro and others (not Peyote of course) were not illegal until processed for human consumption. Or is San Pedro one of those things that they will just get you for if they feel like it.

  4. torachi
    I may be wrong, but I think that having peyote is probably enough for them to go on for human consumption of the Pedro.

    Still bullshit though. Portugal is one of the most lax countries.

    Devils Fig tree is an argemone species, i.e. prickly poppy and related.

    I wonder if Peyote and San Pedro cactus are illegal in Portugal? Considering that one needs about 1,2 kg of fresh san pedro for a full on trip, this may be considered a quantity for personal use. (7 doses)
