Ohio kids stumble upon and eat THC chocolates their mom kept hidden in cabinet for a year
The boy, 10, could only eat one piece while the girl, 12, had already finished eating 17 of the THC chocolates as they were 'hungry'
SEVEN HILLS, OHIO: On October 19, Seven Hills police were dispatched to an address after a distress call at Panorama Drive, Ohio, because the children there had stumbled upon and eaten a box of THC chocolates their mother had probably tried to keep hidden in a cabinet for over a year.
A boy aged 10 and a girl who is reported to be 12 years old had consumed the cannabis chocolates that contained tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The officer who was arriving at the address talked to the worried caller who shared that her siblings had been "hungry." And after searching for something to eat, they found a box of chocolates, which they ate to satisfy their hunger, reported Cleveland.
However, as the luck would have it, the boy could only eat one piece while the girl had already finished eating 17. In a short while, the girl started to feel sick and when she read the packaging on the box she immediately called her mother and went to the bathroom to vomit the chocolates out of her system, the report said.
The mother of these children told the officer that she had received the box of chocolates from a friend a year ago, and that she had stored them in the cabinet. But this couldn't keep her children out, who eventually found it as they were hungry. The mother further told the officer that each of the 20 pieces of chocolates in the box contained 100MG of THC.
As per the report, when she took her son and daughter to the nearby hospital, she was cited for endangering children.
