I really wish I had read up on datura before just drinking the tea of 6 seed pods my friend had made.

So I drink 2 cups (coffee mugs actually) on the night before Thanksgiving... I'm with a group of friends. They're all watching Candyman cracking up and for some reason I start to feel the effects and I start to pet the floor. The floor feels so good. Then I tried standing up but my head was so heavy I kept falling over. Next thing I know I'm in the bathroom just sitting on the floor and staring at my friend sitting with me in silence.

My friend comes in saying she has to go home by curfew, so I have to drive. This is where all hell breaks loose. I remember the car turning into the carpet I was petting earlier. My friends telling me I'm driving in people’s yards but all I see is carpet. By then, my mouth was so dry I couldn't swallow and I could barely even speak. I'm just driving. So we crash, and I keep on driving and my friend, still quite sober jumps out of the car. I end up totalling my car. Don't remember much but the cracked windshield and saying 'is everyone okay?' hallucinating people are in the car with me, but I'm alone.

I kinda black out, then I have small memory of the cops questioning me, me and my friends being taken to the hospital, then not understanding how to pee in a cup so I had to get a catheter up me. And my friends did too. I black out from there. So my mom actually videotapes me messed up, I'm having conversations with people who aren't there, talking about off the wall things that have nothing to do with the situation (IE: I say 'we have to go to Target' to the person that isn't on the phone at 5 am, or asked how I'm feeling I reply 'Movies today aren't good like 1 and 3, you know.') Just total nonsense.

So I wake up the next day with no memory of me crashing my car or any of it happening. I have rational thought back, but I still hallucinate the entire next day. It was thanksgiving, I have no idea what we ate, what we talked about, I just remember watching some made up cartoon in my head on a sheet of aluminum foil. I hallucinated some more, like some horse and buggie going down my neighbors driveway, etc. Went to bed and woke up the next day fine, except for blurry vision and dilated eyes.

Sounds funny and cool, but it's really not. I couldn’t talk without choking on my tonsils, there's no saliva, I felt retarded and unable to do any regular daily task, I was just about paralyzed. DON'T DO IT!!!
