Delicious Cactus

A news story out of Texas without comment.

Georgetown Police Chief Wayne Nero said Stephanie Hoskins Brown drank the juice of a San Pedro cactus that was cooked so that it produced mescaline, a hallucinogenic drug that is illegal in Texas.

OK, I can’t not comment on this. But rather than comment on the specific Texas Police Officer and the specific Texas laws and the specific very conservative Texas legislature, I’d rather comment on the beautiful, stunning Big Bend NP in the SW corner of Texas. My comment is as follows, “It’s Great!”

Let me just add that you don’t cook an Echinopsis pachanoi to produce mescaline. You cook it to make it palatable. The mescaline was already there.
