The "vines" from sweet and regular potatoes contain toxic elements.

Not all herb plants are safe.  Herbs used for cooking are safe but some also have medicinal uses and medicinal herbs may or may not be safe.  Some herb plants are grown because they are poisonous.  Pennyroyal is classified as a herb and is toxic.  It is used as a repellant.  Lavender is a multiple purpose herb that is used for repelling insects, fragrance and used in cooking.  The plant is safe but concentrate is not.

A rule of thumb is when looking at plants to determine safety, look at the part of the plant you expect to use to determine safety of the plant (i.e., the tomato is safe to eat but the plant is part of the nightshade family with toxic vines).
