A Mass Fragmentographic Method for the Determination of Mescaline in Biological Fluids
Mescaline or 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine is an alkaloid isolated in 1896 from the peyote cactus, Lophophora williamsii. The drug was named after the Mescalero Apaches of the Great Plains, who had developed a religious peyote rite. In 1918 several peyote churches of North American Indians joined together and formed the Native American Church.
