I am looking to find a book or books that detail the different speices of poisons plants including the growth, cultivation, and use of their specific attributes.
Any help you could render would be appreciated. I am also looking for books that cover the uses of non poisons plants as it refers to medicinal purposes.

A quick search of Amazon pulls up a ton of books on medicinal herbal remedies. I have one buried in my storage somewhere, but can't recall the name of it just now. I know there was a set of books done based on the "Grow your own Drugs" TV series as well that might be useful to you.

As for poisonous plants, many times I have seen herbal books include poisonous plants with a warning not to actually try using the remedies associated with them. Often it is a matter of dosages being a careful balance between curing and killing the patient. I would think that any extensive herbal remedy book will also include a number of 'poisonous' plants as well.
