Mass. has them as well, and they look very similar to a plant that is very common, especially on the hill in my backyard. Now my kids are afraid to go outside

Hey...where's Perry?

It's hard to love any plant that if you even have it brush lightly against you will result in an allergic reaction.

This is a plant that needs to be killed. It's a non-native, invasive species that is highly phototoxic and causes blistering, permanent scarring and blindness. It's become a real problem in my area. Poison ivy it tame in comparison.

Not to mention we can remove these types of plants and replace them with plants that won't cause these kinds of issues. No one is advocating killing plants and paving over the affected area.

How can anyone advocate letting this kind of invasive, clearly toxic, plant live?

That is,  of course, your option, just as mowing your lawn is. There is the 'LAW' of having to keep your lawn a 'certain way' so the locals don't shoot you in the head and take your house away...... :lol:
