Dubuque Child Eats Entire Bag of Edibles and Sleeps for 2 Days
A Northeast Iowa woman has been charged after authorities found out a young child she was babysitting, ate a bag of gummies laced with THC, and slept for 2 days.
23 year old Janika Williams of Dubuque was taken into custody last Thursday (May 6) on a charge of Child Endangerment with Bodily Injury. Williams was arrested on a warrant, at a residence on Pennsylvania Avenue and John F. Kennedy Road in Dubuque.
The child, whose name was not released, was under Williams' care, while the mother was working. When she returned home, the parent took her child to the hospital.
After eating the entire bag of gummy edibles containing THC, the child fell asleep and could not be woken by Williams, who let the youngster sleep for 2 days.
