I wonder  if the original post might refer to Ariocarpus, rather than 
Lophophora.  I've seen ariocarpus plants in touristy dish gardens.

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 
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.
