9. Dumb cane
This plant is often seen as a plant in your home that loves to sit in the shade, but the leaves can be extremely poisonous where even chewing on the leaf will lead to huge pains in the mouth, throat and swelling of both that can actually cause difficulty breathing – like being strangled to death.
10. Jimson weed
One of the first plants known for causing a poison-related death in the United States is credited to this type of weed that was actually used to kill British soldiers by the early settlers in the 1700s. Records show that the plant also caused the affected people who lose their sanity.
Other people have reported not being able to see, talk or understand their surroundings while also having the risk of falling into a coma or passing away quickly. This week has a number of aliases as well, including stinkeweed, devil’s weed and angel’s trumpet. Some people will actually take it for hallucinogenic purposes, but learn the deadly truth.
