accidental poisoning
« on: August 02, 2020, 10:39:08 AM »
so in my work I see lots of stuff.  some of which makes me a little paranoid and drives my family crazy.  with all the MVAs as an example, I am always lecturing my kids and wife on driving.  this happened the other day and made me shake my head.  there is a candy made like gummies and very sour that kids love.  I am not a fan of drugs (still illegal in Ks)  and this manufacture purposely made this package to look just like the candy sour patch kids.  but it is stoner patch.  and the THC is 50mg each.  a child ate 4 as grandma watched (as the babysitter), thinking they were just candy.  they belonged to a parent and were left out.  the normal adult dose is 2.5 to 10 mg if nave to the drug.  safety with other chemicals is important too.



 



 

the child will be ok.  this is poison control for the country.  it is supposed to work in each state.  you will get a pharmacist at a teaching hospital to tell you if you need to go to the hospital, or what to watch for.



 

these frig magnets are available nationwide, at you pediatrician, health department.
are frig doors even made out of metal anymore? :)  keep all drugs and chemicals out of the reach of those kids!   ;)

Thanks for the info Doc. It's just wrong that such a product can be labeled in such a manner while at the same time a SWAT team descends onto a farmer for bringing raw milk into Washington DC.

I am glad the child will be ok. Hope this will be a lesson for the adults but unforrtunately not everyone will get the message.

Wow! I can't imagine somebody thought this was a good idea when they were sober (oh, wait...). Seriously, this is bad stuff and shame on the adults for their 'medication' control habits.
 That poison control number should be in every cell phone. I put it in mine years ago when I was actively running EMS along with the numbers direct to the charge desk at each ER we worked with, the state  child abuse hotline, and later the cell numbers in each of out ambulances.
 Thanks for posting it Doc, it made me go check to see if I still had it in there and I do. I suppose I could take some of those other numbers out, but you never know when they might come in handy.

you are a good neighbor and I would leave them in for the next time someone asks you advice or for help.  all adults should prob. have them.  can save a lot of nervous parents from unneeded visits to ED, and more important, going in when you really need to.

Just an fyi there are several animal poison control numbers, ASPCA has one but they do charge a consulting fee. I won't put the numbers up since they charge fees but they do exist.

That's too bad. Glad the kid is ok.

I miss the good old days when they only used cartoons to sell cigarettes.

Me too.  My 9 yr old daughters best friend slept over 2 nights ago and brought her smart phone.. The first my kids have had access to.  What a disaster.  I banned the thing from my house after concluding i just cant get kids to understand how many predators are on the other side of that screen.  Nevermind the bickering it caused between the 3 kids.

If i could just find a replacement mainboard for Mr Fusion and get this thing up to 88 again..  Id take us the heck away from 2020.

I was going to tell my wife about the fridge magnet when to my surprise I looked up and lo and behold there was already one on our fridge.
Dumb me I hadn't noticed it.
