Lead Weights - Do I Really Need to Worry?

Hi All,

I need to hear the "voice of experience." I've got a heavily planted 55gal
with fish in which some of the stemmed plants
were planted with the lead weights attached.  There might be 2-3 lead
weights buried in the substrate here and there. Is this REALLY a major concern
requiring "immediate" removal of the weights to prevent lead poisening,
or should I just remove them over time while tending to
things and not worry a whole lot? Things are just starting to "come
together" with this aquarium and I hate to go in there at this time and
start uprooting the recently planted flora.
