KUWAIT CITY, May 7: The Ministry of Interior has summoned the owner of the house for interrogation and has initiated a search warrant for the suspect who planted the Datura plant in front of the house in Rumaithiya since the use of this plant is forbidden according to the Anti-Narcotics Law, reports Al-Rai daily. The Al-Rai daily said, securitymen are reportedly checking the CCTV cameras of the neighboring houses to find out more details.

This happened after the operations of the Ministry of the Interior received a report about the plant in front of a house in Rumaithiya and the Public Security Sector of the Rumaithiya Police Station of the Hawalli Governorate was tasked with dealing with the issue.

Meanwhile, it has been reported the seeds of Datura are analgesic, anthelmintic and anti-inflammatory and as such, they are used in the treatment of stomach and intestinal pain that results from worm infestation, toothache, and fever from inflammation. The juice of its fruit is applied to the scalp, to treat dandruff and falling hair.

Daturas have also been used as poisons, medicines, and ritual intoxicant agents since time immemorial. Each species has its own characteristic strong narcotic tropane alkaloids (typically scopolamine, atropine, daturine, and stramonine), which also make them among the most dangerous and poisonous plants known.
