Sweets are for kids, and brownies are many children’s favorite. Four young ones in North Carolina made the mistake, however, of getting their hands in the “forbidden cookie jar,” oblivious, of course, to the dangers of what they thought were simple brownies. It turned out those brownies were not meant for kids’ consumption as those were marijuana-laced.

A man was arrested after his relatives, including four innocent young children, unwittingly took from his marijuana-laced brownies stash.

The suspect has been identified as 40-year-old Justin Neal French. French was taken into custody by the police on Sunday after Iredell County police officers received a call reporting a family including three children aged 6 to 9 showing signs of intoxication after eating brownies at the suspect’s home.

Responding officers quickly established the smell of marijuana in French’s home in Statesville as soon as they opened the door. Another 4-year-old child there was also suffering from the same symptoms as the other older children.

When questioned, French admitted to the detectives that he baked the marijuana-laced treats but insisted the batch was for his personal consumption only. He said he was not aware that the pot brownies “got mixed up with another batch of benign confections.”

Some social media users appeared to be amused with what happened and made jokes.

Two adults and four children ate the marijuana-laced brownies.

The four children who ate the pot brownies by mistake all appeared lethargic and seriously ill. They were brought to the hospital for observation. Good thing that they are expected to recover.

French is facing a litany of charges, including four counts of misdemeanor child abuse, aggravated misdemeanor possession of marijuana and selling and delivering a controlled substance to a minor under 13 years old.

He remains in custody on $300,000 bond at the Iredell County Detention Center.

"Seriously ill?" Nonsense. No one has ever died from marijuana ingestion.

Telling them they were seriously ill caused more trauma than the brownies.

"including four counts of misdemeanor child abuse, aggravated misdemeanor possession of marijuana and selling and delivering a controlled substance to a minor under 13 years old."

The American "justice" system, everyone. Break into someone's brownie stash and the guy gets slammed with charges because you gave your children brownies of unknown origin.

This is ridiculous! I would bet the relatives wouldn't have rushed to call EMT's and or cops if they accidently drank his fruity alcoholic freezer slush, and that would have been more dangerous. Just put the kids to bed early and find a better spot for your dang pot brownies! They would have been just as safe and not got the guy charged with multiple crimes. This is not like the babysitters making the kids hit the blunt like we read about the other day.

Ridiculous article, marijuana is harmless. That doesn't mean that kids should be exposed to it, but it's absurd to claim that they are "suffering" and "seriously ill" due to "dangers", or that it was ever uncertain that they were expected to "recover".

Poor guy, those are some serious charges. All for people eating his property without his knowledge or consent.

Seriously ill? I doubt it. Seriously, were the children harmed in any way? No. Imagine the outrage if these folks walked into a restaurant in Italy and seen children drinking a glass of wine with dinner. "Marijuana" laws need to change. It is literally a weed that will grow in a sidewalk. Should the kids be getting pot laced brownies? No. Should a man go to jail for it? Absolutely not!
