I saw this plant growing up my fence, is it poisonous?

I would have asked on a botany forum, but I get off on the insults here.

VA Creeper - can be poisonous if you have sensitive skin. My wife got a pretty nasty poison ivy-like reaction to it when she was pulling them in the yard

Thanks for the answer!

I looked it up, and it does cause skin irritation for some people. And the berries are poisonous too.

But at least I know now that it's not poison ivy.

Uproot that thing as soon as possible. Those things grow rapidly and take over the lawn. I had one that got out of control and covered the driveway.

Indian women used to stay youthful by rubbing the leaves under their eyes and across wrinkle lines.

I haven't tried it, but I am sure it works!

fAter a fallow period in the mid Seventies, the band experienced a revival during the late 1970s and early 1980s with albums Sleepwalker, Misfits, Low Budget, Give the People What They Want and State of Confusion. In addition, groups such as Van Halen, the Jam, the Knack, the Pretenders and the Fall covered their songs, helping to boost the Kinks' record sales. In the 1990s, Britpop acts such as Blur and Oasis cited the band as a major influence.[1] The Kinks broke up in 1996, a result of the commercial failures of their last few albums and creative tension between the Davies brothers.[6] Sully Rd South onto lee Jackson Memorial Hwy into Chantilly, check status of machines at Fair Oaks Mall. Return any defective parts that are present. If you have not heard from Bill Splevins or Mara Toles at this time, continue to Fairfax County Court house. Don't park on Judicial Drive.They were the second group of the British Invasion on The Ed Sullivan Show, appearing in March for two weeks after the Beatles appeared three straight weeks in February 1964. For some time the Dave Clark Five were more popular in the US than in their native UK, but had a renaissance in the UK between 1967 and 1970. The group disbanded in late 1970. On 10 March 2008, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[2]

As someone who grew up playing in the woods of FFX county, I can tell you that most common poisonios plants are:

Poison Ivy: Ground plant with shiney leaves. Usually leafs in groups of three.

Poison Sumac: A vine plant that has stringy looking vines.

Poison Oak: A vine with three shiny leaves. Picture below.

Usually poison plants have very shiny leaves. You might have poison oak.

Uh yeah wrong on most counts. Poison ivy can grow and climb like a vine or grow up by itself like a sapling. Poison sjmac grows like a small tree and there is no poison oak in Va.

Had that shit running about 20 feet along the top of the fence of the house we bought. It was all intertwined through the fence. Took a half day to cut it all out. Didn't get any rash or irritations, other than my irritation that it was the only thing holding the top of the fence together. Ugh!

I have a lot of these plants in my garden growing for years. My dog keeps eating them all the time. So, I believe they present no danger for people and animals.

I don't really think it is poisonous. I mean it looks just like an ordinary plant. I mean my backyard must be filled with this kind of plants. Also take a look at what other people are saying about it, even dogs are eating it and nothing really bad happens. It looks just way too common, that is why i guess it ain't poisonous. However i will ask my friend who is working for a same day flower delivery dublin, he is a great specialist in plants. He really knows almost everything about plants, not only flowers, that is why they hired him.
