Elderly Canadians fed cannabis-laced chocolate brownies, end up disorientated

A group of elderly Canadian citizens got more than they bargained for, and certainly more than simple indigestion, after enjoying a meal at their community centre in Whitestone.

Some of the elderly persons had to be given medical assistance after feeling disorientated, with a number of them throwing up.

It emerged from investigations that the elderly citizens had been given chocolate brownies which contained cannabis. Not everyone tasted the cake, however, as it was offered as part of a multi-choice buffet.

Ontario Police are investigating how the cake ended up containing cannabis, and whether it had been purchased in error by the operator, or whether it had been added intentionally.

Cannabis use was legalised in Canada last year, but it is a crime to give this substance to third parties without their consent or with intent to cause harm.
