Lophophora williamsii is a schedule 1 drug plant. All parts of it growing or not are Illegal to possess without a DEA license.  I can assure you cactus bowl sellers do not have DEA licenses.  I don't know the date of it becoming scheduled so perhaps it was available in the past. It is clearly on the list now. 

I don't grow any cactus so don't know about this genus and its other spp , but California's own law forbids growing ANY species in this genus.
