Florida mother Morgan McCoy experienced every parent’s nightmare when she found her six-year-old daughter lethargic and unresponsive.
The reason? McCoy’s daughter had accidentally eaten a marijuana gummy thinking it was candy.
Now, McCoy is calling for more explicit advertising of marijuana edibles so other parents won’t have to suffer as she did.
The brand of edibles McCoy’s daughter consumed, Faded Fruits, comes in bright, colorful packaging and looks very similar to Hawaiian Punch packaging. It’s no wonder that McCoy’s daughter thought it would be safe to eat. McCoy urges manufacturers to change their labels to clearly state and show that edibles contain marijuana, as well as avoiding the colorful packaging that appeals to children.
Additionally, McCoy strongly urges parents to store edibles in a responsible way: out of sight and reach. It could be the difference between life and death for your child!
