Dhatura is known by the name of Datura, thorn apple or moon-flower. It grows and flowers in the rainy season which contains the Hindu month of "Sawan". "Sawan" is the holy month in which Shiva is specially worshiped. Availability of Dhatura flowers and fruits in this month makes Shiva devotees happy. Both flowers and fruits are offered to Shiva. Though both Dhatura flowers and fruits are toxic, Shiva accepts them because he can tolerate them. As you know He had taken the most toxic poison () named "Halahal" which came out of ocean when it was churned by gods and devils. This story of Hindu mythology says that Shiva took that poison to save the world and kept it in his throat. It made his throat blue. So He is also called "Neel-Kanth" meaning blue throat. Dhatura fruits which have thorns on it contain numerous toxic seeds. These seeds when consumed even in small quantities may produce symptoms of hallucination to madness.
In general when something is offered to gods, it is taken by devotees as "Prasada" after worship. But in the case of Shiva-worship if something is offered to Shiva putting it on the Shiva-linga, the eatables like fruits and sweets are not consumed by devotees as "prasada". So offerings of toxic things like 'bhaang', 'dhatura', 'aak' etc has a symbolic meaning that the Soul represented by Shiva gets the power to destroy all the toxic things that the world has to offer.
