School officials warning about kids eating flower seeds to get high
A Massachusetts School District is warning parents about the dangers of children ingest flower seeds to get high.
Seekonk school officials put out a warning after the seeds were discovered on Seekonk school property, reported Fox 25 Boston.
The plant seeds, which include Sleepy Grass, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Blue Morning Glory, contain d-lysergic acid amide (LSA). LSA closely resembles LSD and can cause auditory and visual hallucinations when ingested. The side effects include nausea and vomiting. Over the past several weeks, several students from a nearby school district were hospitalized after ingesting the seeds.
The Home Depot in Somerset has removed the seeds from their store, but officials warn that the seeds may still be sold at other locations.
Anyone with information about how the seeds got onto Seekonk school property is urged to contact Seekonk Police.
