Looking into mountain laurel and found this!

Is Mountain Laurel poisonous to humans?
Harmful Honey. Humans generally do not suffer from contact with the mountain laurel plant, except in one case. Honey made by bees that have taken pollen and nectar from flowers of the plant can cause illness when consumed. Signs of poisoning include cardiac arrhythmias, vomiting, mild paralysis and convulsions.
Is Honey toxic?
If bees obtain their nectar from certain flowers, the resulting honey can be psychoactive, or even toxic to humans, but innocuous to bees and their larvae. Poisoning from this honey is called mad honey disease. Even when honey is not produced from the nectar of toxic plants, it can still ferment to produce ethanol.
