A page from "Peyote: America's Baffling Sex Button" by Jack H. Davis. Full of misinformation as part of a drug scare piece, the front page includes several errors. "Peyote comes from the fruit of the mescal cactus and has long been used in Indian sex rites." "Growing Wild in Many Parts of the U.S., This 'Orgy Drug' Causes Hallucinations and Wild Desires. Yet Many States Still Don't Have a Law Against It." "Most peyote-chewers are bohemian types. Drug is cheap and plentiful, and the legal risk is sometimes slight." From article titled Sasha's Peyote and Mescaline: Excavating and Digitizing the Cactus Papers, by Keeper Trout [California, USA]
