A group of seniors accidentally scoffed a batch of cannabis brownies brought by a 73-year-old woman who didn't know that her adult son had allegedly baked them with THC butter.
Police responded to multiple calls of a "possible poisoning" and found that all the patients had been enjoying a game of cards at the local community centre.
The incident happened last Tuesday in Tabor, a town with a population of 423 people, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Police responded to several calls of a “possible poisoning” and found that all the patients had been playing cards at the Tabor Community Center and were “under the influence.”
Cops arrested Michael Koranda, 43, after he reportedly told them he had cooked the illicit goods with half a pound of THC butter he bought in Colorado, where recreational cannabis is legal.
Koranda then went to bed and “his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game where several people ate them,” the affidavit read. He was charged with possession of a controlled drug or substance, which is punishable to 5 years in prison, according to the report.
