Family First Comment: Edibles’ potency (several times that of an average joint) and their attractiveness to kids have led to serious problems in legalized states. Edibles comprise at least half of Colorado’s marijuana market.

A cafe owner has been charged after two young children and their mother ate a brownie allegedly laced with marijuana at his Perth business.

The complainants, known only as Michael and Sharon, told the ABC their family went to the Bada Bing Cafe in Woodlands on March 2.

Afterwards their five-year-old daughter Emily described things as “jumping” and her vision became impaired, they said.

The family went to hospital and soon Sharon began developing similar symptoms, while their three-year-old son Thomas was drowsy.

Hospital tests showed Sharon and the children had traces of marijuana in their system, they said.

Michael, who did not eat the brownie or have any symptoms, said he returned to the cafe the next day and bought another brownie.
