I saw on the news this morning that there has been an increase of marijuana overdoses in children between the ages of 2 and 4. Nobody saw that coming? Marijuana is legal in Colorado now, so pot users are allowed to have up to an ounce in their possession. Is it a shock that some of these users are parents? Why would people not think before bringing marijuana-laced brownies, suckers and other child-tempting products into the home? To make things worse the food products contain concentrated amounts of THC. Smoking marijuana and eating products containing it are very different things. It’s easier to overdose on food products, especially if you happen to be a small child. I can’t believe nobody saw this coming.
This article might explain things more clearly. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/05/08/marijuana-pot-edibles-thc-legalized-recreational/8463787/
