Kids Hospitalized After Eating THC Candy From Local Food Bank in Utah

A Utah Food Bank is not apologizing after they served over 690 bags of weed candy to children. Each bag contained 400 milligrams of THC. 

“Right now, we do not believe nor do we have any evidence to support that the donation was intentional. We have discussed this issue with our local food bank and it appears to be an accident,” police sergeant Matthew Gwynn told NBC News in a statement.

An 11-year-old and a 5-year-old were taken to a hospital Friday night after consuming “Medicated Nerds Rope” candy given to their families as part of a food distribution effort from a church working with the Utah Food Bank. 

How y’all feel about this? I’m sure some of y’all wish y’all was at that food bank!
