A Renfrew, Ont., hardware store has pulled seeds of a flowering vine called morning glory from its shelves over concerns young people have been snatching up the packets to get high.

Renfrew OPP are warning parents to be on the lookout for the seeds after Scott & Sons Hardware store in Renfrew reported it sold "an abundance" of them last week, mostly to teens and young adults.

The seeds contain LSA, a milder form of LSD, and can cause people to hallucinate when ingested in large quantities.
