Colorado toddler tests positive for Marijuana

What a great idea, legalizing pot. Now even the toddlers can get easier access to it even when they don’t know they are:

TIMES CALL – Longmont police are investigating how a 2-year-old girl ended up with THC in her system on Tuesday, according to Cmdr. Jeff Satur.

The child’s mother took her to Longmont United Hospital on Tuesday afternoon because the child had become lethargic and acted oddly during a trip to the grocery store, Satur said. A toxicology test was performed and her urine tested positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Satur said the girl’s mother said she does not use drugs, but she told police she found the girl eating a cookie that she had reportedly found outside the family’s apartment complex on the 200 block of East Eighth Avenue about a half hour before the family headed to the store.

“She told (the girl) to drop it and the kid threw it back in the grass,” Satur said.

Satur said a search of the area and the family’s home failed to turn up anything and the girl’s mother will be tested for the drug, as well.

“At this point we are believing the family,” he said.
