With recreational marijuana use becoming more acceptable in modern society, the edibles industry is booming. Tasty, THC-laced products range from a Nutella-like substance to cannabis-infused lemonade. But the classic pot brownie remains as the preferred snack to get one baked. However, if you think you're eating regular brownies, and you eat four of them, things are likely to go horribly wrong.
That's what happened to a 53-year-old man in Omaha, Neb., this week. He found a sack of brownies in the back of a car that one of his children had been driving, reports the Omaha World-Herald, and proceeded to wolf down a few. Unfortunately, the man didn't realize his kids enjoy getting groovy, and a long night ensued. Per the Herald:
Paramedics called to the scene who checked the man found his vital signs to be normal. But they noted that he was displaying odd behavior — crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities and calling the family cat a "bitch."
The man told paramedics he felt like "he's trippin'." He declined their offer to be taken to the hospital.
That's not very chill, man. Paramedics reportedly helped the stoned father to bed, where he presumably had some totally trippy dreams.
