I can only imagine these people having a midnight electrical emergency and, one that is taken care of, they head to the emergency room for thorn removal and, possibly, stitches to close the scratch wounds. This is a deadly bush and should not be anywhere near the panel, the gas meter, the water meter, etc. They should be planted on someone else's property where you can enjoy their beautiful flowers from a distance.
