    That's the doctor's stock answer for ineffable unanswerables.

    Hoodia Gibsonii. The plant has an amphetamine-like effect, and is used by tribesmen in southern Africa for all the reasons other folk use coca, qat, kif,caffeine, etc. The plant grows wild, is not currently being cultivated, so I expect much of the Hoodia on the market is HooDoo.
