After some legal troubles I will not longer be able to partake of cannabis as I have been accustomed to for quite some time. So I began searching for plants that would produce a similar effect without showing up for on a drug screen.

After some research I found out that there are several mild psychoactives that grow in my home state of Pennsylvania. After some hiking I was able to procure a supply of sassafras root, common skullcap (scutellaria galericulata), opium lettuce (Lactuca) and have a nice sized jar of fresh ground nutmeg.

I proceeded to experiment with each individually. The pipes of skullcap and lettuce I smoked produced some effect but were largely unimpressive. The nutmeg laced cigarettes I smoked produced a near hallucinogenic high with shadow and light boundaries becoming very pronounced and detailed textures becoming very interesting. However there was a bit of paranoia and the smoke wasn't very enjoyable. The pipes of sassafras root bark was much more rewarding with similar effects to nutmeg with a much more relaxing body high.

Tonight I decided decided to combine them all. The mix was roughly equal parts sassafras, lettuce and skullcap with about a teaspoon of nutmeg mixed in. The smoke was much less harsh then any of the above individually and didn't have any trippy effects. However there was a calming of the mind and a relaxing of the body that if I didn't know better I would have believed I had smoked reasonably good cannabis. This will likely be a mainstay for the remainder of my probation as a good alternative to commercially produced 'legal weed'.
