4 students fall ill after eating Morning Glory seeds [CA]

4 Oxnard High students ingest flower seeds, get ill
June 9, 2005 - venturacountystar.com

Four Oxnard High School students ended up at the hospital Monday night after they ingested morning glory flower seeds to hallucinate, one of their mothers and police said.

The boys ate so many of the seeds that they hallucinated, but also had heart rates as high as 140 beats per minute, said one mother, who is not being identified by The Star to protect her 16-year-old son's identity.

Three of the boys were admitted at Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, and one was not released until Wednesday, the mother said.

Four cases of hallucinating from ingesting morning glory seeds have been reported to the California Poison Control System this year, said Dr. Judy Alsop, a pharmacist with the agency. While the seeds have killed laboratory rats, Alsop said it would be difficult for a human to ingest enough seeds to die.

The mother said her son and his friends made a tea from about 300 seeds and made a sandwich with its flowers. Alsop said that is definitely too much.

The flower's seeds contain a compound much like the one found in LSD that causes visual hallucinations that can last for hours. The one boy kept in the hospital the longest hallucinated the entire time, the mother said.

The climbing plant grows readily around California, and the boy told his mother they got the flowers near the Port Hue-neme Police Department.

They had heard of friends who had done it and learned more about it on the Internet, the mother said.

Oxnard Police Department School Resource Officer Mike Marostica said teenagers will often try odd things to get high, but he had not heard of other students ingesting morning glory seeds in his 12 years with the force.

Most store bought seeds are coated with poisons to prevent the seeds from being eaten by bugs and to prevent the seeds from rotting.

Oh, good point seuss, i didn't think of that one. So, they probably went to the hospitable because they were ignorant of the words on the seed packets. ARGH!!!

Spencyspence:
50 morning glory seeds isn't enough to get the desired experience, it takes somewhere between 200-400 for most people (definitely start on the low end). It was smart of you to start with 50, good to work your way up.

They didn't buy the seeds, it said they harvested them from some plants near the police station. But yeah I got the impression that it was 300 seeds between 4 people, not much at all...probably just teenagers freaking out "oh shit dude, we're gonna diiiiiiie mannnnn" "yeah dude, totally, we should, like, go to fuckin hospital or something" "man my moms gonna be so pissed".

Doh, I missed that.  Thanks.  :smile:  Even hand picked seeds can have been sprayed with pesticides and the like.  I wonder if the paper got the type of seed correct... imagine if they had picked datura seeds instead.

Yeah, it seems entirely possible that either the kids mis identified the plant that they harvested from, or else the newspaper got it wrong in their reporting. It sucks how you can never really tell what happened from newspaper articles.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I saw a post on here earlier with a person who thought morning glory and datura were the same thing. The amount of seeds they took probably wouldn't even cause a single hallucination if it was MG but I can see it being so with datura. It says in the article the kid hallucinated from monday night until wednesday which definitely sounds like something datura would do. I wonder if anybody even went and looked at the plant the kids were talking about or just went off their word. We all know 16 y/o's are great at plant identification. :rolleyes:

They're so fucking stupid, I can see them making morning glory illegal and taking it off the market while datura stays readily available.
