People say about all parts of it being poisonous. .... well..... not to just touch /hold/brush by etc (or I would be dead 3 years ago.. !!!) and frankly.. I am not going to eat it !!!

Its the least of my worries here.... well below Copperheads and Black Widows and Recluses and the occasional Scorpion !
