Ipomoea violacea "Morning Glory" grows wild and abundantly in this region of the Canyon Lands of lower Pecos Rio Grande. Its has been used as one of the principle hallucinogens used for divination for thousands of years. A drink is prepared from a thimbleful of the crushed seeds. It is five times as potent at Turbina corymbosa also known as Ololiuqui. This snake vine was wrapped around sunflower plants behind my office.
