Seeds Pulled From Stores After Students Use Them To Get High
Students in Seekonk were hospitalized for consuming plant seeds that contain a substance similar to LSD.
Seekonk police posted a statement from Seekonk Superintendent of Public Schools Arlene F. Bosco on Facebook about students from the Seekonk school district who were found to be ingesting the plant seeds Sleepy Grass, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Blue Morning Glory.
Those particular seeds contain d-lysergic acid amide (LSA) which closely resembles LSD.
The seeds can reportedly cause auditory and visual hallucinations, spatial and temporal disorientation, introspection and side effects like nausea and vomiting.
All of the students found with the seeds were examined at a local hospital, but none were seriously harmed from eating them.
Home Depot in Somerset did agree to pull all of these seeds from their shelves, but police warn parents that they may be sold at other stores in the area.
