    Unfortunately, I can't cut and paste a link to this news item, but if you google it, you'll find the story. A young mother says that her 2 yr. old child accidently ingested THC from a "brown cookie" the child found and "nibbled on". I think I'm calling bullshit on the mother's story.

    7NEWS - Longmont toddler tests positive for THC; Mother says girl ate a pot cookie she found - Local Story


    LONGMONT, Colo. - A Longmont toddler tested positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, after her mother said the girl ate a pot cookie she found in the yard outside their apartment complex."The mom says she doesn't use marijuana, and we searched her house and didn't find any," said Cmdr. Jeff Satur, with the Longmont Police Department.
    Police said the mother noticed the girl was acting lethargic at the grocery store about a half-hour after she ate the cookie and she took her to Longmont United Hospital.
    When doctors ran tests, they found the 33-month-old had THC in her system.
    The little girl had to spend the night at the hospital, but is back at home now, Satur said.
    Her mother has agreed to be tested and to allow her 8-month-old child to be tested for THC as well.
    Dr. George Wang, a pediatric ER physician at Children's Hospital, has studied the rate of children being hospitalized after ingesting marijuana in Colorado, and says that in recent years, there has been a dramatic surge.
    "They become sleepy, unbalanced, some even have trouble breathing when they come in," said Wang. "A child is not going to know the difference between an edible product without marijuana and an edible product with marijuana."
    Even with requirements for child-resistant packaging, doctors and police are concerned this is just the beginning of a dangerous trend.
    "I think we're going to see an increase in this and it highlights the hazards of having marijuana out and accessible to children," said Satur.

    Perhaps CO can correct this problem by requiring instant background checks of anyone buying MJ and incarcerating anyone who leaves a "loaded" cookie where a child can access it. :rolleyes:

    Who doesn't watch their 33 month old like a hawk, especially when playing outside?

    Even if you're watching, do you know how fast a 2 year old kid can put a cookie in their mouth? I'm not saying she wins the mother of the year award or anything, but I'd like to hear the results of the test she volunteered to take for her and her 8 month old being tested for THC before I make any judgement.

    When I worked at the aircraft company in Tulsa, one of the fabrication department was going to have a small party for a birthday as I recall. One of the hippie chicks brought pot brownies. One of the older ladies developed a taste for those brownies and despite repeated warnings from the Hippie chick to go easy on them, the lady snarfed a pile of them.

    About an hour later, the brownie lover ended up on the toilet screaming hysterically. She didn't know what was happening to her and went totally bonkers! In spite of efforts to calm her down, she ended up being transported by ambulance to a local hospital!

    There was an FBI office on base that was well populated by Barny Fife clones. The investigation that followed found nothing.

    Incidentally, that FBI office is the same one that I butted heads with over searching my home. That went VERY badly!
