"...Datura belongs to the classic "witches' weeds," along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens, and datura has a long history of use for causing delirious states and death. It was well known as an essential ingredient of love potions and witches' brews...."
It's very close in leaf and seed except for the stem color, so it may be a cousin.
Would suggest composting it.
If it's a hallucinogen, keep it away from Mouse..
Redmink, long time no see, where have you been hiding?
For the same reason as no-burn for poison ivy, didn't think hallucinogens being in the air would be smart.
Hittin' the books, going to get that degree.
Over here you can be prosecuted for having deadly nightshade growing on your land if general public has access on account of it being dangerous to children. Is it the same your side of the pond?
With all that type of plant weedkiller is the safest way to deal with it.
Good law, but no, not over on this side of the pond. Had to stand watch over a basket of nightshade berries that a neighbor's elderly grandma from China had picked. I'm sure it looked something like what she was used to. When the daughter got home, I explained, and asked her to translate, so all turned out well in the garden that day ... whew.
