Boy, 3, Rushed To Hospital After Eating Grandmother's Marijuana Cookies

Boy Eats Grandmas Pot Cookies

A young boy looking for a snack mistakenly ate one of his grandmother’s marijuana-laced chocolate chip cookies and had to be rushed to the hospital unconscious — how sad!

The three-year-old boy was taken to the hospital June 30 when he couldn’t be awoken after sleeping for 16 hours straight at his home in Murietta, CA.

The family wasn’t aware that the young boy had eaten an unknown number of cookies that contained drugs until they arrived at the hospital.

The boy’s grandmother, who has cancer, had a legal prescription for marijuana to lessen her symptoms and baked the cookies for herself. According the grandmother, the cookies contained so much THC, the active chemical in marijuana, that the boy’s grandmother could treat her pain and drift into sleep with one silver-dollar-sized bite.

The boy was staying with his grandmother while his father was at work on June 29. The boy’s grandmother put the cookies in what she thought was a safe place: an “out-of-the-way” refrigerator in the garage. But the three-year-old was able to sneak into the garage and eat the drug-laced cookies, even under the grandmother’s supervision.

The young boy was admitted to the hospital for observation, but thankfully recovered from ingesting the drugs. The boy’s father and grandmother could face child endangerment charges for the incident.

HollyMoms, do you think the boy’s grandmother and father should be charged with child endangerment?

Charging the grandmother and father for anything is just ridiculous. Children get into things no matter how hard we try to keep them in site. She had proper prescriptions and she attempted to keep them out the way. And the father was at work ! I’d understand if he got into coke or somethin but this was an honest mistake. Had they had a little more knowledge on the drug they would have known he was gonna wake up lol

I don’t think they should get charged because she had cancer and had a legal prescription for marijuana

What a wonderful story with a happy ending for the family!!
In my state, she would have had to be on pharmaceuticals for her cancer. If her grandson had found and ingested anything that would have been prescribed in most other states, he would probably be dead.

Then after hearing the cops talk about how dangerous marijuana is, he laughed and took a nap. The only reason this story got reported at all is because the mom needed 2 IV bags after the kid sucked out every last drop of milk in her body while mumbling something about cottonmouth. What a joke. Pot doesn’t even hurt a 3 year old but its so bad we need to rip your family apart and send you to prison. Don’t forget to celebrate your “freedom” this 4th of July :)

the grandmother’s story is one big lie. there is no way a supervised child just ends up in a refrigerator in the garage opening containers and eating cookies. bullsh!t. honestly, my daughter doesn’t even eat without asking for something, and she’s 4. and, she would never just go in the refrigerator, even the one in the house, and just get a container and open it and take out cookies. not to mention that if i knew i had pot in the house i’d be extra vigilant to have it out of reach. no, the story is horse crap, and the grandmother’s cancer probably is, too. pot is so free flying in this state it’s ridiculous.

First off, I have a 6yr. and a 3yr old and my 3 yr old would TOTALLY go in the garage(has done it many times) and would open the freezer if he was strong enough( he can and will open boy my fridge and freezer in the house. So it is VERY possible.
Which is also the reason I don’t have any “edibles” in my house. Grandma, if you don’t like to smoke it get a vaporizor!
