I had decided, despite several negative experiences by friends, to try some Datura. I went to the local plant and procured 3 slightly dried blossoms. I consumed them later that night, nearly gagging at the taste. Shortly after, I began to feel slightly intoxicated, and very thirsty. I knew from reports that datura often causes extreme thirst, and panicked when I realized I had nothing to drink. I became very afraid and decided to sleep it off. I awoke in restraints in a hospital. I was told that I bolted up in bed, eyes bulging, muscles straining, repeatedly whispering 'He's coming to get me'. Similar behavior continued, and the paramedics where called, and I was taken to the hospital.
