Pot brownies get dad in trouble
A father has been charged with two crimes after his 5-year-old daughter got sick after eating marijuana-laced brownies she found in the family's home.
On Saturday night, the girl's father, 24, of Waukesha, dropped his daughter off at his mother's home because he was going to a concert in Milwaukee, said police Capt. Mike Babe.
Babe gave this account:
Later that evening, the grandmother noticed the child was lethargic, her pupils were dilated and she was acting "strangely." She also had what the grandmother called an "unusual appetite."
When the girl said she had eaten brownies that were on top of the stove at home, the grandmother took the child to the emergency room at Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Police were called to the hospital at 1:51 a.m. Sunday, after tests came back positive for the presence of marijuana in the girl's bloodstream.
