    Chinchillas! Dionaea!

    White willow, the plant aspirin was derived from, is native to asia and europe. Believe it or not, crack doesn't come from the crack willow!

    If "inappropriate" is what I'm guessing it is, I think there's some doubt about its New World origin.

    LSD? isnt it derived from Ergot? IT was made in the States right? The ergot fungi is all over the world though it was brought over from Europe?

    Lol nah, it was just a joke spin-off from JLAPs previous post. Something about smoking crack willow leaves.

    Edit: Yes it is derived from Ergot, which is found, I believe, on rye. Though I have heard that the name applies to many different types of fungus. Anywho, Mormons come from the Americas lol... interesting history there.

    I threw NASCAR in the list as a joke but the more I think about it, it is a viable American export, as are the NFL, NBA, and baseball. Bourbon is very definitely an American product and its' primary ingriedent is native to The Americas.

    sunflowers
    Guinea pigs (cuy) and yes some people do eat these
    lots of different beans
    cashews
    Peanuts
    squash
    pineapple
    cotton
    These are great choices for the list that I did not think of...except possibly cotton. I am not sure it originated in the Americas. Cuye is a staple food in Ecuador and is actually quite good. It tastes a bit like roast pork.

    Finch, I did not know Alspice is native to the Americas. I learned something. I use it a lot in my cooking.
