Disgruntled Wal-Mart employees form non-union union @ 12:57 pm

And I quote:

I first got high in Charlestown on nutmeg. My cellmate was among at least a hundred nutmeg men who, for money or cigarettes, bought from kitchen-worker inmates penny matchboxes full of stolen nutmeg. I grabbed a box as though it were a pound of heavy drugs. Stirred in a glass of cold water, a penny matchbox full of nutmeg had the kick of three or four reefers. - Autobiography of Malcom X

Nutmeg? You can get high off nutmeg!?!

I just use it for baking pies, but...apparently...(see below)

Attributed Medicinal Properties of Nutmeg
Used in small dosages nutmeg can reduce flatulence, aid digestion, improve the appetite and treat diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. Nutmeg’s flavour and fragrance come from oil of myristica, containing myristicin, a poisonous narcotic. Myristicin can cause hallucinations, vomiting, epileptic symptoms and large dosages can cause death. These effects will not be induced, however, even with generous culinary usage

I was going to mention that nutmeg is poisonous, but I got beat.
