29 Nov Brownie bust leads to concern about online sales of weed edibles
Delta police caught a woman allegedly selling marijuana-laced brownies with 40 times the recommended dosage of THC.
The dessert looked almost identical to a regular grocery store package of brownies, but stated it had 400 milligrams of THC. The packaging did not show any warning labels for children, which would make them easy to confuse them with regular brownies.
It’s very easy for under age individuals to get their hands on edibles online. They could also convince someone to buy some for them also. The danger of teens getting their hands on edibles is the delay of effects that it has on the body. The delay of effects makes it easy to over consume, putting the teens in more danger than usual.
Edibles have yet to be legalized, but the federal government will be looking into it in a couple of months.
