Stalking the
By MERYL GORDON
The city's most potent "stash"
lies, not in that baggie in the
drawer, but in the University's
Botanical Gardens.
There in a sheltered, half-
moon shaped plot grow a large
variety of exotic drugs ranging
from a mind-bending variety of
apples to the ingredients for an
alcoholic brew so heady that it
is outlawed throughout most of
the world.
It's all legal, though, accord-
ing to botany student Audrey
Delcourt. The medicinal gar-
dens, she says, are strictly for
educational purposes.
"The gardens are here," she
says, "to show the public what
our ancestors used for drugs or
cures and the ways they used
them."
Some of the plants are also
harvested in the fall for use in
botany labs, giving students

niques.
Many traditional spices, such
as basil, spearmint and sage are
grown in the garden. However,
some uses of the plants are a
little more sensational. Hyssop
and wormwood are prime ingre-
dients for absinthe, the highly
alcoholic drink now outlawed.
Safflower, which can make
yellow food coloring, also speeds
up measles by causing the
blotches to erupt.
According to Delcourt's notes,
the thorn apple plant, "became
widely known at America's first
colony in Jamestown, Va. in
1607. It is said that men ate
thorn apples with curious re-
sults: Capt. John Smith's ac-
count of their mad antics is
very amusing."
Delcourt said that poisonous
plants, such as hemlock, are also
grown in the garden to show the
public which common plants are
dangerous.
