A man suffering from an anxiety-filled pot trip, perhaps a bit of an ‘overdose’, had to be subdued by police and paramedics after his wife called in the authorities when she noticed her husband calling the cat a “b**ch”, and crawling around on the floor. This was not his usual behavior.
Police figured out that the man’s teen had baked some marijuana brownies and forgotten to hide them from unsuspecting victims. The dad ate four of the brownies after coming home from grocery shopping. He apparently found them in the backseat of the car.
The husband and wife were watching television together when he started to exhibit some extreme anxiety. Not only did he curse out the poor cat, he crawled around on the floor cursing up a storm at random moments.
The best the police could do for him was send him to bed.
Cooking Panda reports:
When police arrived, they did a bit of sleuthing and discovered that the hallucinogenic brownies had been baked by one of the children, according to a police report.
The practice of adding marijuana to brownies was first popularized in the “Alice B. Toklas Cook Book,” published by Harper & Row in 1954, according to The Straight Dope website. Toklas was the lesbian lover of renowned writer Gertrude Stein.
Toklas’ name eventually became almost synonymous with pot brownies, her recipe becoming a staple among hippies and other marijuana connoisseurs in the 1960s. In the classic 1968 movie “I Love You, Alice B. Toklas,” for example, Peter Sellers’ character mellows out with some brownies made from her recipe.
As for the brownie-dosed father from Omaha, he was put to bed and the investigation into the incident was closed, police said.
Is grounding enough to teach this teen a lesson? What would you do in this situation?
