If you happen to come across a plant inside a concrete median strip along a bike lane on the Upper West Side, beware — for the unassuming plant could kill you!
What a long, strange trip: Bumper crop of Datura stramonium, aka Jimsonweed, growing in planting bed on Columbus Ave. Greenway at 93rd St. in NYC. A well-known hallucinogenic plant, it is also fatally toxic when consumed in even tiny amounts. @NYC_DOT @nycHealthy pic.twitter.com/k7p9sy3p6Z
