is it safe to plant sweet peas in the same yard as garden peas

I bought a package of Black Knight Sweet Peas thinking that they were an edible pea (sweet pea sounds good doesn't it). As it turns out they are poisonous. Is there any possibility that they will cross pollinate with my edible peas and make them poisonous?

Don't worry. Different species. Different genera.
Sweet pea = Lathyrus odoratus Garden pea = Pisum sativum
Sweet peas are called that due to the prominent, pleasant scent.

The answer is already posted - cross pollination won't happen. However, if somehow it did, the seeds from you edible pea plants would still be edible - and the seeds from the sweet peas would still be poisonous. It's the seeds produced by the offspring you'd have to worry about.
