HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.--Three senior citizens attending a funeral reception sampled brownies that they'd never forget--or perhaps they have forgotten actually.
Among the ingredients used in the brownies: medicinal marijuana. According to sources, the person who passed away had been a consumer of medicinal marijuana.
Reception planners decided to lace the brownies in a tribute to the deceased.
All three people, whose ages range between 71 and 82, were rushed to the hospital after experiencing dizziness, nausea, dry mouth, the munchies, and the inability to stand on their own.
Others reception attendees, mostly of a younger generation, were not sympathetic to the elderly people's situation.
"We wonder why medical costs are going through the roof," said Wanda Carlyle, 48. "A little bit of ganja, and you're off to the emergency room racking up thousands of dollars that'll be billed to Medicare?"
Wilson Cruz added, "And why were they trying to stand on their own any way? Just fucking sit back and enjoy. Of course you're dizzy--you're stoned, man!"
Said Carlyle, "The whole thing is ridiculous. And they're from California, for Christ's sake. You'd expect a bit more tolerance from them, that's all."
