In deep South Texas near the US–Mexico border, four Mexican-American individuals are the only government-licensed peyote dealers in the United States who can legally sell the plant to members of the Native American Church. The peyote cactus is used by members of the Church as sacrament in their religious ceremonies. Considered a controlled substance, peyote trade is closely monitored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Tens of thousands of plants are harvested every year on privately owned land, but supply of the medicine is threatened by land development, over harvesting, poaching, politics, climate change, and the vanishing of the tradition of the peyote dealers.
