TAMPA --

A family of four was hospitalized after ingesting meat laced with LSD bought from Wal-Mart on Monday, Tampa police said.

Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said during a news conference on Thursday that the family, including a pregnant mother, her two children and her boyfriend, started experiencing hallucinations, dizziness, rapid heart rates and difficulty breathing shortly after dinner.

The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office determined the family consumed bottom round steak bought from a Wal-Mart located at 1505 N. Dale Mabry in Tampa, which was contaminated with LSD.

LSD? I doubt this can be tested for so quickly.

I sure hope that we don’t find out it was the anti-Wal-Mart unions who did this to replicate the old Tylenol scare. I’m sure it’ll turn out to be a “lone gunman” as it were.

Someone spiked it to cause problems for WalMart.

Does anyone else suspect the folks who bought the meat did it themselves in order to sue Walmart?

At this point, police say it is not clear if a crime has occurred.

in what scenario would LSD-laced bottom round steak be legal?

I don't think it was the ones in the hospital that did it, I think some wise @ss where they pack it did that and the victims were random.

I was under the impression that heat renders LSD harmless.
[that is what I was told, many years ago, anyway]

I have no personal knowledge of such things so maybe somebody a bit savvier could verify.

I suspect that sort of thing every time a story like this pops up. And nine times out of 10 it’s a hoax.

Really hard to get good stuff for decades now. 350 mcg of “Purple Owsley” would make one hell of a steak.

I'm sure it's some variation of that theme.

This Walmart is in a neighborhood where people who are likely to do that would live.

That was my first thought on reading this. Police should take a quick look at the credit rating, finances and employment status of the victims, IMO.

Fox 13, Tampa reported that the investigation includes whether the meat was tampered with after purchase.

Oh wow, man, as I enjoyed my burger I came into such a deep interpersonal communion with the spirit of the cow as we danced through flower festooned meadows together and I was overwhelmed with the cow’s generous forgiveness of my otherwise barbaric indulgence and then I had this vision of an approaching distant figure on a white horse and I then realized it was only my podiatrist as I fell face down in an agony of contrition of my sins against the higher Being and then.....

(sorry)

Food was purchased and consumed Monday, March 3. Story broke the following Thursday.

I still maintain that the family put the LSD in/on the meat. For any number of reasons, not the least that I have never known a doper to just to throw their stuff into the wind as this was done[figuratively].

Just saying but I think this is a very quickie blaming of collective hysteria/hallucinations on LSD when it is more likely caused by something more common with other family members mimicking

If I was a reporter my question would be about the LSD testing

My bottom line is-——— Highly doubtful they bought LSD tainted meat from the store. Was there actual LSD to be found? Need more testing details

The rest of the details remain to be discovered. It could be one of those phony ginned up lawsuits

I tend to suspect everyone, until proof otherwise exists.
PETA is not off the hook, either.

Walmart used to have a reputation for not “setteling” lawsuits, and taking them all to trial.

I'll wait a while before I formulate an opinion on this one.

It has been reported that the baby was born healthy, and the family is fine, for which we all are greatfull.
