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.

Danny - maybe you should also include an off road towing service number too?  :D

You probably need to upgrade the speakers in your truck, too :D

You know selling that stuff used to be a felony ::).   I am putting the number in my phone, it will save a few seconds of looking next time I need it.

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.
