Now this is definitely something that’s blown a few minds!
In what seems like a bid to boost the spirits of worshipers at the weekly service, a 74-year-old man gave THC-infused cookies to several congregants, aged between 12 to 70 years old
Later on during the day, after the effects had started to set in, the hungry church goers started to complain of of “adverse effects”. One church goer complained that the cookies tasted pretty salty…
In a humorous report from Vice, the parishioner known as Mr. Jones was accused of serving cannabis-laced cookies to six members at the St. John’s Apostle Catholic Church in Bloomington, Indiana.
Several members of the church ended up in the local emergency room later that day
Mr. Jones has admitted this his hands made the cookies but denies any wrongdoing and states that he didn’t add any illegal substance to them in the cooking process.
Police were able to obtain a warrant and subsequently search his home. They found an “orange pill bottle containing capsules of a brown, oil substance” which later tested positive for marijuana.
The man in question turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest. He was subsequently charged with criminal recklessness and possession of cannabis oil.
Father Daniel Mahan of the church said:
“We are praying for everyone involved. We are praying for Mr. Jones. We are keeping in prayer those who took ill that Sunday and we are praying for justice with mercy.”
Even though the medicinal herb has been used for well over 3,000 years and the scientific community are now coming round to the idea that the plant has incredible medicinal properties, this story illustrates just how the cookie crumbles in our current society.
