Out here in Colorado we have a lot of Mullen plants, also known as natures toilet paper. The leaves, not the stalks.
Very Similar to our "Hog weed", Maybe a type of the same thing. We had a kid in the adjacent county. who wiped his face with it and ended up scared for life and minus an eye. Very bad stuff. We are taught to Identify it and and properly destroy it immediately. It is an evasive species around here, but it has been showing up more and more.You think poison Ivy, oak and Sumac are bad, we have this wonderful plant with nice wide leaves uninformed people think would be perfect for toilet paper... It's called Pushki - - aka "cow parsnip"
The oils on the stalks, and leaves (I think flowers too) have a photo-toxin that activates in sunlight. While your backside may experience some discomfort in the form of rash and burning, this will be nothing compared to the open burning oozing sores (literally burns) that will develop on your hands... These sores can last weeks to months and keep reactivating if you don't keep the skin covered from UV.
Mullen is a wild herbal tobacco. It has a narcotic effect and was used by the Navajo. It is not native to America.
