What with medical cannabis being legalized in more and more states, the variety of edible marijuana products available continues to expand. Users can buy pot-enhanced cookies, brownies, s’mores, ice cream  . . . even lasagna and extra virgin olive oil. Increasing numbers of toddlers are inadvertently ingesting these tasting treats, and showing up in ERs with weird altered mental status. My Emergency Medicine News column on this situation is online, and can be read here.
