LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine toddler is recovering from an accidental drug overdose after eating a marijuana edible, earlier this week. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the two-year-old boy consumed a homemade THC-infused candy left on a table. 

 

Deputies say his 27-year-old mother discovered the partially eaten candy but waited several hours, until overdose symptoms worsened, to call 911. When medics arrived, the toddler was clearly in distress; he was taken to the hospital with life-threatening overdose symptoms. Katelynn Joy is charged with child endangerment and neglect.  
 
THC is the mind-altering ingredient in marijuana that provides the "high" for users. Because the candy was homemade, investigators say there's no way to know how much T-H-C the boy consumed.
