Has anyone ever heard about peyote or even used it? While growing up I heard about people using peyote, how it makes people hallucinate and so on. It is believed that north american native Americans have been using it for thousands of years as an aid during their spiritual ceremonies and so on. It can be found growing in the wild in Mexico, it looks like this: People cuts this pretty looking cacti leaving the roots behinds. They get peyote ''buttons'' that then are left to dry up before they can be consumed. I have actually seen this growing wild where I lived, but I never tried it. I heard the native Americans also used this to treat several ailments. I haven't met someone who admits using it. I guess people can easily become addicted to it. Had you ever heard about peyote before? ever tried it?
