Are plant weights safe?

Some plant weights are made with lead. The thought is that the lead weights become dangerous after a long time sitting in the water, and the protective coating begins to wear off.

That being said, most aquarium weights made today are "environmentally friendly", meaning they're most likely lead free. When looking for weights, I try to buy those. I'm not positive, but I think they're made of zinc.
