Hello Arthur!

I'm in the southeast US so I'm not sure if this plant is native to your area or not. I have Sida rhombifolia invading my small property and so while I decide whether to irradiate the weed or try to control it I am researching. My understanding is it has ephedrine and has medicinal qualities and can be dried and used as a tea. But, before I proceed, I'd like to have more concrete ideas as to how to use it safely....or if it is better to get rid of it.
