    It is just to try to protect themselves. The medical system in the us is extremely messed up because the only thing that can cure, prevent, or treat a disease is a drug. Many types of nutrient difficencies can cause many types of disease, so these disease could have prevented by eating a nutritious diet, but that would make the food you eat in the US a drug.

    I am
    always put off by statements on entheogen vendor sites that state things like “not
    fit for human consumption.” </span>I tend to
    assume that it is simply a cover story so they don’t get nailed. </span>However, the problem is that sometimes plants
    really aren’t fit for human consumption – e.g., they have been treated with
    fungicides. </span>Unless one contacts the
    vendor and clarifies exactly what they mean, one is left to guess.</span>

    Mandrake contains tropane alkaloids and can be very toxic at the wrong dose, do research on erowid, they have some vaults related to these substances.


    "Depending on the amount consumed and the means of preparation, mescal beans can cause a wide variety of effects, ranging from vomiting, headaches and nausea to intoxication, stupor and even death." From The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Substances.

    Stay away from those beans, even the indians who used them gave them up as soon as they found peyote.





    Peace,
