As many as nine children were treated for stomach pains and drug overdose after accidentally eating “stoney patch” kids drug-filled edibles.

Despite lies to the contrary, childhood poisonings have doubled and even tripled after pot was made “legal.” Enough. Time to lock up these drug dealers and burn their poison fields back to the dirt. You can all take one last “toke” as you watch them burn.

I have no problem with occasional pot use for adults, but I do have a problem with ANY "adult substance" packaged in such a way as to appeal to kids!

I don't think it is too much to ask for the FDA to step in and put a stop to this kind of merchandising.

I agree. We need a strict "one strike and you're out" policy for all industries. We could have wiped out the auto industry with the first car accident, eliminated electricity with the first accidental electrocution, gotten rid of space flight after the Challenger accident, eliminated air flight with the first plane crash.

Definitely time to punish entire industries, sectors, and consumers because of the mistake of one company.

We can be back in the stone ages in no time, and we can fully ensure no further research gets done on how THC and CBD can improve our medical results and other industrial pursuits.

And OP, a card-carrying Team Red member if memory serves, fails to hold the parent of the child personally responsible for allowing the youngster to get his/her hands on the candy.

Again.

Been happening with alcohol for a long time. I'm guessing the OP is for the banning of that also.

It’s almost impossible to overdose on weed. How many kids have died from prescription drugs? How many kids have died from gun violence?

And I’m sure you feel the same way about guns.

Why in the world are people calling poison control centers and taking kids to hospitals if it was known to be THC. Nothing to do but wait it out. Not going to do any real harm. Just chronic use on a developing brain that can be an issue.
