I never knew that poke sallet came from the leaves of the pokeweed plant. I've never eaten any and nobody I know has but I do know that the berries are something you do not want to eat. I remember reading in a newspaper a few years ago about two teens in our area who ate pokeberries and were found two days later hugging trees and having hallucinations in the woods behind the neighborhood where they lived. That does not sound like a the kind of trip that I would want to take!
