Foul Tasting Stimulant

4 in oral Calamus (roots)

I once ate about 4 inches of fresh calamus root.

It's a stimulant. It's a pretty good stimulant, in fact. I didn't notice any hallucinogenic effects, but perhaps I needed a larger quantity.

In any case, it's one of the foulest tasting drugs I've ever consumed.
