    Default Perils of Pot

    I am sure there are many more incidents such as this one, but the warning should apply to all who have it around their homes or anywhere else that itis available t childrne.

    From CP24 News, today.


    Published Thursday, March 4, 2021 2:07PM EST
    A child was rushed to hospital by ambulance after mistaking a package of cannabis edibles for a common candy and eating some in a Toronto apartment this week.
    On March 2 at about 9:30 p.m., police say two children and their mother were in their apartment in the southern part of Scarborough when one of the kids found a package of candy.
    Investigators said the package of candy was labelled “Buzzy Peaches” and the child ate one of the edibles inside.
    “The mother immediately called for an ambulance when she discovered what had happened,” investigators said Thursday.
    Paramedics arrived and took the child to hospital where they were treated and released.
    “Initial investigation has revealed the product was purchased legally and no criminal charges are expected at this time,” police said.
    Police are urging all parents to keep cannabis products locked and well out of sight from children.
    “Since many of these products have similar packaging to non-cannabis products, it is also strongly recommended that children cannot see or have access to the place in which they are stored,” investigators said.

    Sounds like the mother handled it well enough, given the circumstance. I'm glad pot is being legalized in more and more states. In time, just as with alcohol, people will learn how and where to store it if they have kids around.

    There's been attempts at getting the packaging to look less like candy but as can be expected the "it's just a harmless plant, man!" crowd won't tow the line. I'm all for legalization, I'm also all for responsible use.

    The " mother " should lose her right to purchase the dope. Dopes with dope are a recipe for disaster.

    I have a feeling it was a recreational state, the medical state packaging is all white and has a big THC warning label, nonetheless the packaging in recreational states makes it look like, well candy obviously. They need to store stuff better but also the packaging needs to not look like it's something you buy in a convenience store, should be all white with a THC warning and what type of edible it is.

    Michigan was medical only and is now fully legal for rec as well. Packaging has NEVER been labeled as such there nor is it in Colorado or Illinois.

    Not a state at all. The incident took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
