Poisonous Life

Makes you wonder!
In Austria a rather unusual contamination of 1-kilo-packs of millet already in retail has been noticed in routine tests - with thornapple-(Datura-)seeds, on average 17 pcs. per kilo.

The highly hallucinogenic seeds don't look like millet at all, so they should be easy to spot, but experts are left wondering how the contamination could occur, thorn apple usually not being part of farming.
