Ricin - the poison

Ricin comes from the caster-oil plant (Ricinus).  I grew a few of these plants because the are a very fun / crazy looking plant.  I've noticed a whole bunch of what I think is the same plant growing along the river in Santa Cruz.  It's hard to see in the photo, but is is at the edge of the brown grass.
