Peyote, an endangered species, is also a Class One Hallucinogen on the same level as LSD and PCP.

It is a psychedelic drug and is illegal to use, grow or sell.

In addition to 1,900 grams of peyote, deputies also found and confiscated illegal mushrooms, THC wax, and 35 marijuana plants inside the house.

Peyote, which was widely used among some Native American tribes in religious rituals, is a cactus that once ingested is highly hallucinogenic.

Noorian was arrested on felony charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
