On Friday, three elderly people from Southern California brought a hackneyed sitcom scenario to life when they unwittingly downed pot brownies at a friend's memorial. During the service someone passed around a tray of brownies, but didn't tell anyone they contained medical marijuana. Sadly, the ensuing hijinks don't sound all that hilarious: Three seniors in their 70s and 80s were admitted to the hospital with nausea, dizziness, and the inability to stand unassisted.

Two things: it's really hard to measure the right dosage, so funny brownies can be way too strong. And to feed it to someone who doesn't know what he/she is eating, is really stupid. I once was at a party where someone ate a pot brownie without knowing it, and he started to hallucinate and almost lost it. They had to take him to the ER because he was flipping out. And he was in his early 20s.
