Morning glory seeds a new drug craze
May. 3, 2006 at 6:50PM
Morning glory seeds, a legal product, reportedly are being used for their hallucinogenic properties by U.S. young people looking for a buzz.
Doctors, gardening shop workers, drug counselors and parents are starting to take notice of the trend to ingest hundreds of the seeds and get an LSD-like trip in return, The Washington Post said.
Chris Holstege, a doctor at the Blue Ridge Poison Center in Virginia, said more people are asking what to do if their child ingests the seeds.
Ayers Variety and Hardware in Arlington County, Va., said it caught two boys stealing some seeds.
The Post contacted officials from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse -- neither had any information or data on morning glory seeds.
But schools and law enforcement officials in Ohio have been warned about their use, the Post said, and Louisiana has passed a law banning possession of the seeds if they are intended to be ingested.
