Toddlers Hospitalized After Eating THC-Laced Snack From Daycare

“It sounds like a college prank, children accidentally getting high eating goldfish edibles (which are most often ingested in the form of baked goods or candies), but in fact, the side effects of THC on minors — particularly children under 12 — is of serious concern. Like other controlled substances such as alcohol or tobacco products, THC has the power to more adversely affect children because their brains are not fully developed. Edibles are more potent than other means of ingestion. Marijuana is known to increase blood pressure, cause anxiety, increase lack of coordination, cause confusion and paranoia. When combining those elements with a young child, who doesn’t understand what’s going on, along with the fact that the side effects last longer with edibles and smaller children, the consequences are so much greater than what adults experience.”

    Thank you for posting this! I am so sick of hearing how marijuana is a harmless substance. Nobody under the age of 25 should use marijuana because it stunts brain development. When I was working in mental health, we used to get young people in who were totally psychotic from using marijuana. The U.S. government has been completely irresponsible in its handling of marijuana, in my opinion.
