Poison Hemlock; Conium maculatum is a highly poisonous biennial herbaceous flowering plant in the carrot family Apiaceae, native to Europe and North Africa. Socrates was said to have taken it and died as a result. While it was once popular as a medicine it is known to be highly toxic and potentially lethal, so it must be avoided under any circumstances.
