Cinnamomum parthenoxylon, or Mreah Prew Phnom, is harvested and distilled to create "sassafras oil" to be used in the production of the drug ecstasy. That fact is getting some attention recently. Perhaps it's worthy of an article?

  • Already a page up. How do you like it? Nessie (talk) 17:38, 15 April 2010 (UTC)


What does "Three taxa are commonly found at tree line: an evergreen, needle-leaved gymnosperm (Abies pindrow Spach.), an evergreen, broad-leaved sclerophyllous oak (Quercus semecarpifolia Sm.), and a deciduous, broad-leaved birch (Betula utilis Don)" have to do with the article? Are these types of Cinnamomum? It's not clear how these are related to the main content. Ostrolphant (talk) 14:03, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
