Toddlers get high on THC-goldfish, Virginia daycare owner charged

A Virginia daycare owner has been charged after three toddlers ate goldfish containing THC, authorities said Friday.

The one-year-olds, who are unrelated, were taken to a hospital in Stafford last month after their parents noticed the children had ‘glassy, ​​bloodshot eyes’, the official said. Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

The children also displayed lethargic and uncoordinated behavior.

Hospital staff carried out tests and confirmed that each child had been exposed to THC, the psychoactive substance found in cannabis that produces the high.

Investigators have linked the three children to the licensed family day care center run by Rebecca Swanner, 60.

During a search of the daycare, detectives recovered goldfish crackers found strewn around the children’s high chairs.

Laboratory tests later confirmed traces of THC in the crackers.

Swanner voluntarily surrendered her daycare license after child protective services became involved in the case.

She surrendered on Thursday and was charged with three counts of cruelty and injury to children, the sheriff’s office said.

Swanner was released on an unsecured bond of $2,000.
