LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4)- Police in Longmont are trying to figure out how a toddler got her hands on marijuana that made her sick.
Two year old Evelyn tested positive for pot and ended up in the hospital but her mother doesnt know how the child came into contact with the now-legal drug.
Evelyns mother, Aida Hernandez, believes the child ate part of a cookie she found on the ground in the grass outside of their apartment.
It was brown, like a chocolate chip cookie, said Hernandez.

Here's the problem I see. Why not just grow it in your back yard or garage or basement.
Could happen. Another kid tossed it (no pun intended) because they did not want their parents finding it? Or some one tossed it there hoping a kid would find it and thought this was a funny joke? There are sick people out there.
She let the kid eat a brown thing found in the grass outside her apartment? It’s a good thing the kid didn’t step in it first.
I don’t see a problem with that, growing it in your own backyard or basement is not harming anyone or affecting anyone in any immediate way. Same for using pot of course, and as for it destroying lives, well there’s thousands of people who probably are using it now and have used it and are still more productive and successful than anyone here on FR. That is a fact. Just like for tobacco and marijuana.
“the girls mother, Aida Hernandez”
we can now close this thread because no more discussion is necessary.
and so it begins...
I agree with you, and nobody should give a rip if I choose to cook meth for my own personal consumption............./s
So you mean the police and other LEOS and military should care if someone chooses to grow marijuana in their own garage or room somewhere? Is that what you are getting at?
“She let the kid eat ....”
Trouble is by the time most two year olds have it to their mouth, it’s history!!!
it's been decades, but I still remember how quick my kids could spot and grab something before I could stop them. It doesn't actually say that she let the kid eat it, she stated that she took it away but the child became sick a half hour later.
“it’s been decades, but I still remember how quick my kids could spot and grab something before I could stop them”
Like cat food? I won’t say to but it happened.
Who I mean
Okay. So my joke didn’t work. I’ll keep my day job. LOL!
“My client merely found the drugs, and was on his way to the police when he was arrested”
There is nothing like retrieving a mashed up June bug from your one year old's mouth.
Maybe. That stuff is pretty pricey though.
So you have no problem with me having a meth lab in my garage, is that what you mean?
They certainly did trust her! /s
Seriously though that's a little odd. Pot is now legal in CO so why would they search the house? If the kid got into some household product and the parent said they didn't know how because they don't have that product in the home would the cops search the house to verify the story?
“It was a Tootsie Roll, mommy.”
“No honey, it was a dog turd.”
Yeah right. Mama left her damn “cookies” out and the kid ate one.
Is this woman legally in the US?
It will no longer be cool...but just stupid.
"Hey let's rip off the stoned kid...he won't know the difference. He won't even remember."
This story is about a 2-year old. If you are fine with giving it to 2 year olds you are off the edge of common sense and reason
Apples and oranges. Pot plants don’t explode or give off toxic fumes.
as for it destroying lives, well theres thousands of people who probably are using it now and have used it and are still more productive and successful than anyone here on FR.
I wouldn’t count on it.
Maybe she has visitors who are users. Like a boyfriend. The kid didn’t head off to the local marijuana store and I don’t believe the kid picked up a cookie off the lawn. LOL
My lab is closely monitered and down wind of the neighbors.........
Maybes are endless so I guess you can believe whichever ones you want to believe. lol
For sure. For example, posting all of the ABSURD anecdotal stories now coming along that FReepers with an agenda can tout as Gospel truth... is a sickness borne from ignorance! Marijuana is not toxic. NOT TOXIC*!
What symptoms did the child exhibit that caused this testing for marijuana? Drowsiness? Craving for Doritos? Turning up the volume on the drum solo from "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"?
Ignorance abounds from all of the FReeper drug warriors that show up on these threads. They should all band together and dress up in black, arm themselves with automatic weapons and knock down a few doors. Don't forget to shoot a few dogs along the way!
Meanwhile, suck up another beer or two!
*Toxic means being poison and the ability to cause death. No one has ever died from smoking pot. You can check the hospital records yourself. Pot is not toxic.
Plants don’t require such diligent maintenance. Still apples and oranges.
I don’t like ants.
So are unexplained. I would figure a two year old would be accompanied by an adult outside. If I was watching a two year old, I would not allow the baby to eat a cookie off the lawn. If that is the case, I would figure that the child was not being properly watched.
Ain’t no skin off my nose anyway, so I won’t argue it.
I’m a guy who has never had any kids so I can’t speak to keeping an eye on two year old kids. Perhaps some FReeper mommies can weigh in on the ease or difficulty of that. Actually some already have.
Don’t Bogart that ant, my FRiend...
She’s 2. Where’s her mother when she’s outside picking up cookies off the lawn and eating them?
I was standing a field in North Carolina in 1986. I felt a sharp sting and looked down to see a fire ant chewing on my leg. That was 27 years ago. The spot on my leg is where it bit me. It is a permanent dead area of sin and flesh on my leg...
I am surely a sinner, but forgiven by the Grace of God through Jesus Christ!
Yikes! I’m not a fan of ants either. Thankfully I’ve never encountered fire ants.
If someone (especially a child) got poisoned bad enough, perhaps it is proper to investigate what happened and who could be responsible. Some houses are not safe to live in.
With regard to "would the cops search the house to verify the story," this is an excellent illustration of the well known YouTube lecture called "Don't talk to cops." The mother made a statement that the substance is not in the house. This turned it into a testable theory!
Hey, what do you have against the contributors on FR since you recent arrival? This “.” is a period, and this “,” is a comma. They are not interchangeable. I learned that on FR.
All very good points. The idea that an authority should step in, when a reasonable cause is found, to insure the well being of children in their own home is a natural impulse. Unfortunately the reality is that too often the authorities charged with doing that cause more harm than conditions in the home were. And too often in homes where no harm existed in the first place.
One time I put on my BDUs in the dark and got destroyed by ants. I flicked on the light, dropped my pants, and had around 50 ants on me. Luckily I am not allergic. SOB’s ruined my BDU pants too.
Must be the pot....
Believe me, right about now I have WAY more important things I have to worry about than whether or not you have a meth lab in your garage or anywhere else on your private property, so at the moment, at least, no, not really.
I am sure there are, I do not know why you say that. Especially if you count those who did it at least a few times in high school, college and/or any other time in their 20s or early 30s.
Nobody is ok with that, and that includes virtually all libertarians, including even big L Libertarians in the Libertarian party. That is, unless you or anyone else here can show documented proof that big and/or small l libertarians have expressed approval of giving drugs to two year olds.
Maybe you should read again what you posted:
“as for it destroying lives, well theres thousands of people who probably are using it now and have used it and are still more productive and successful than anyone here on FR.”
More successful than anyone on FR?
“Anyone” is a very strong word, and, additionally, there are some pretty successful people here.
I’m not trying to nit-pick and neither am I mistake-free, but words mean things and what you post here will be taken more seriously if they are chosen with care.
Seems frequent pot use can negatively impact one’s ability to use correct punctuation in sentences.
Yeah, that’s what musta happened sarc off
