Pigs on drugs

@val_littlewood pointed out a scattering of Henbane that’s established itself in the garden. A psychoactive plant, poisonous to humans although in smaller quantities it offers interesting hallucinations apparently. Pigs however are immune to the toxicity and “are reported to enjoy the effects of the plant.”[1]

Not stupid are they? As for us? Steer clear. I guess…
