I've been growing it for years around children and pets with no issues. My kids know not to mess with the plants and my dogs never showed any interest so it was never an issue. If you have a curious child that you think might decide to "play" with it or a dog that chews plants I wouldn't grow it under any circumstance due to it's toxicity.
