Subject: Oh, THAT Devils Club!

I've been reading all the FHL posts and it never dawned on me what
Club is until I read Regina's note:

Maybe I'm just biased against the plant though, having come up
and personal with it during a summer of field survey work in
southeastern Alaska-- OUCH!

Regina (the owner of a ferret with insulinoma, hence her interest)

Living in Alaska we were always warned not to eat the berries from
Club and really just stay away from it. I thought that was because
were highly toxic. If people are marketing a Devils Club product
does that
mean it isn't a toxic plant?

Just curious,
