A 4-year-old in Missouri was sent a package from a San Clemente address filled with food laced with a concentrated chemical found in marijuana, sending the girl and her mom to the E.R.
KTVI News in St. Louis reports a family in Jefferson County received two separate gift packages from a company in San Clemente. The family has a relative in Orange County and thought nothing strange. The daughter, unnamed, had just turned 4 after all.
Mom Christine Braun ate a muffin, and the girl had a treat as well. The next thing she knew, she was experiencing strange sensations, Braun told a KTVI reporter. She felt like her blood was thick and she had wet herself.
Both she and her daughter ended up in the emergency room, Braun said. It took five hours before she began to feel normal.
The doctor told Braun the treats had been laced highly concentrated levels of THC, the chemical found in marijuana. The relative in San Clemente said she didn’t send the packages.
KTVI reports that police authorities there are investigating.
