A Well-Meaning Grandfather Accidentally Got a Bunch of Nurses High
An elderly man tried to show gratitude to the staff at a UK hospital for looking after his relative, but things didn’t go according to plan. The grandfather had brought in some cake that had been baked for his 18-year-old grandson’s birthday as a thank-you. After the nurses ate the baked treat, they realized something wasn’t right.
“They were eating the cake and then the next minute the staff were all off their faces,” an anonymous staff member recalled. “It was brought in by a nice old man as a thank you, but it was full of funny stuff and had them all relaxed. There was no impact on the patients whatsoever, but they all knew something was wrong, so the police were called in.”
The cake was later confiscated by local police, who tested it and verified that it did indeed contain marijuana. The man who had brought the cake in appeared to have been entirely unaware of what exactly he had given to the hospital staff.
“After an investigation, officers determined that the member of the public who had brought in the cake was unaware of the content of the cake as it had been left over from their grandson’s birthday party,” said police in a statement.
“Officers have now spoken to all parties involved and given some strong words of advice. The case has now been closed and the cake destroyed.”
