LEGAL MARIJUANA IS ONE THING FOR ADULTS, BUT ARE WE ACCIDENTALLY POISONING LITTLE KIDS?
Lots of folks are happy marijuana is legal in a lot of states, but there may be fallout no one thinks about. King County, Washington recently published a report that showed an increasing number of people, especially children, are accidentally eating and getting sick from it. Colorado reported that since marijuana was legalized there have been at least a dozen kids poisoned when they ate it. And it’s not just marijuana – kids get their hands on alcohol, Tylenol, aspirin—and lots of stuff that is fine for adults, but terrible for them.
