Clusters of columnar cacti like the San Pedro (Echinopsis pachanoi) are very appealing to me. I want to grow it all around my house. I am aware however that this is considered to be a hallucinogenic drug when consumed, so I am curious as to the legality of growing it in Florida (with no intentions of consumption). I would hate for a police brigade to surround my house in some years when I have a front lawn full of psychoactive cacti hiding in plain sight.

  • Well there is no Legal Stack Overflow so the next best subject would be Gardening & Landscaping. – peter jacob Apr 3 '15 at 4:14

Seems to have changed name now, so its Trichocereus pachanoi, and there is someone on a web forum growing it outdoors in Florida - but you should maybe check with whatever passes for your Council or Local Authority to see if planting lots of them is a problem. They're not exactly like marijuana, after all...
