Teen In Trouble From Internet Tea

A Florida teenager may need a pacemaker after drinking a tea he made from leaves or flowers of an Angel's Trumpet plant. The crazy part is that he found the recipe for the tea on the internet. The internet! If you can't trust the internet for hallucinogenic recipes who can you trust? As a parent I am horrified by this story and feel for the parents of this kid. I hope that he recovers fully so that they can beat him to within an inch of his life for being such a dumb ass and then ground him until he's thirty. How can you prevent your kids from brewing the local flora or licking the local fauna? His parents may have even been encouraged to see him take an interest in something as genteel as an Angel's Trumpet flower thinking that no kid who liked flowers could go far wrong.
