Covina, California — Two girls, ages 10 and 11, were hospitalized on Monday after eating some cookies laced with marijuana.

When the girls came home from school on Monday, they found a baggie on the kitchen counter with a chocolate chip cookie inside. Covina police Lt. Tim Doonan told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune that the girls felt ill, complaining of numbness and pale, clammy skin. They were both taken to the hospital where they showed traces of marijuana.

Their mother, 33-year-old Veronica Sylvester, was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment. She remains jailed today on $100,000 bail. Sylvester told detectives she got the cookie from a friend for medical purposes. Doonan says Sylvester has no prescription for the drug.

When are people going to learn that sharp objects and drugs need to be kept out of reach of children? Of course kids are going to eat cookies they find on the counter. The article does not say if the girls were released from the hospital, but common sense tells me their symptoms have since passed and they are probably doing just fine.

    I agree with you that drugs should be kept out of the reach of children, especially drugs in cookie form, however… 100,000 dollars bail! System PLEASE! come on, this was obviously an accident, what about the pedofiles and child beaters, give them some bail like that… the system sucks!

    Agreed. It’s excessive. Especially considering that some child molesters, murderers and rapists find ways to get out on less than that.

    That’ll teach them not to eat something that isn’t theirs.

    Why are freaking adults doing pot in the 1st place?? That’s for like high school & what? Like making them into some form of bakery treat is going to make the drug usage acceptable?

    Wait a minute, the girls got the munchies BEFORE eating the cookie???

    It’s the only thing that works on my migraines, Darsa.

    1 Imitrex ($50 a pill) and 1/2 cookie work better than 4 Imitrex. Sometimes, I can kick the headache with the cookie alone. And I’m certainly no more impaired than my old coworkers who would come to work looped on Xanax and Paxil and Strattera and Effexor and Vicodin and whatever hot-new-expensive-legal-drug-of-the-month their quack doctors were prescribing.

    Before 1905, before William Randolph Hearst decided to invent a “moral panic” to sell newspapers.

    Until that time, cannabis was a well-recognized and widely-used medicine, listed in the Official US Pharmacopeia (Official list of medicines at the time.) It has been used medicinally in many cultures for thousands of years.

    But I can tell that facts are interfering with your pressing need to judge other people, based on long-held prejudice and total lack of information.

    Maybe they have migraines? Or they’re going through chemotherapy? Or maybe Mom has debilitating PMS? Cannabis helps with all those things. A few years ago, I was teasing a young man about his “prescription”, making the same kinds of “Oh, I bet you just want to party!” jokes you’re all working on.

    And then he lifted his pants leg and showed me his artificial limb, courtesy of the military hospital that patched him up after he was wounded in the war. “Cannabis is the only thing that settles down my phantom limb pain”, he said.

    Cannabis actually *is* medicine. Just because something makes you also feel good, if a bit drifty, doesn’t mean it can’t work as legitimate medicine. In fact, if it feels good, you’ll be more apt to take it when you need it for pain control.

    And the “bakery treat” thing isn’t to “make if more (morally) acceptable” to JGo555, All-Wise Arbiter of Others’ Choices, it’s for people who do not like to smoke *anything* (folks with asthma, other lung problems, weak chemotherapy patients who need an appetite stimulant but don’t want to breathe bad air, etc.)

    Indeed. For those who are apparently QUITE unaware, in states that have legalized medical usage of marijuana, doctors who prescribe it recommend their patients ingest it rather than smoke it, because smoking it presents potential medical issues of its own. So, at dispensaries, you will almost always find a wide variety of edible marijuana products. These states also feature chefs that specialize in and teach classes regarding cooking with marijuana at home.

    Using marijuana to treat medical issues is no more immoral than popping some Prozac for depression or a vicodin for a sprain… no matter what form the marijuana comes in. It is unfortunate that these kids got their hands on it, but it’s far less dangerous than if the kids got their hands on a prescription drug or a pint of liquor. The resulting charges and bond are excessive.

    I meant my comment for NON MEDICINAL PURPOSES!!! I will only accept drug use IF THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBES IT & THE PERSON DOESN’T ABUSE IT.

    You will probably never see this, JGo555, but just in case you do:

    You know nothing about this, ignorantly parroting all the Moral Panic stuff you’ve been told by the media.

    Props, though, for being, consistently, among the most self-righteous posters on Dreaming Demon.

    Same fucking thing happened to me one time at my old house.  My roommates were total heathen pot head hippie fucks and they made some chocolate chip weed cookies that were sitting out cooling when i got home from the skate park around the corner.  I had a hankering for one of those cookies and actually ended up eating two.  They were totally yummy and all but when I got to the casino about an hour later and I was walking around I started feeling really fucked up and weird and creepy and shit.  Then it finally dawned on me that I ate their stupid cookies.  As retaliation I pissed in their milk.
