Metro - Teens who got high on flower out of hospital
It's crazy what some people will do. These teens, ages 11-15, ate the seeds of Angel's Trumpet (Datura) seeking a high. Angel's Trumpet, when ingested, causes pupil dilation, elevated heart rate and body temperature and aggressive behavior. It has been known to kill humans and animals who ingest this plant. While lovely to look at and stunning in the garden, Angel's Trumpet contains toxic alkaloids. Be aware and beware. The parents of five teens noticed a change in behavior and took them to the hospital. Three have been released and two are still hospitalized. See the news story link above.
