An innocent grandfather wanted to thank the nurses who cared for him. However, he did not intent to get them stoned.
We all like a good thank present especially if they are sweet yummy treats. A grandfather who knew the importance of a good thank you gift treated the nurses who looked after him with a delicious red velvet cake. However, he was completely unaware of the special ingredient that contributed to a thrilling chain of unexpected events that followed.
According to Independent, an aging old man brought some cake from home to treat the nurses at the Warrington Hospital in Cheshire as a thank you gesture. The pensioner got the leftover cake from his grandson's 18th birthday and had no idea that the cake was laced with cannabis. It was only after a few nurses dug into the delicious red velvet that the hospital realized something was wrong.
“They were eating the cake and then the next minute the staff was all off their faces,” a staff member said.

The space cake brought by the innocent elderly man reportedly had a "relaxing" effect on the hospital staff. However, the staff was also unaware of the magical ingredient that led to it. “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,” said the staff member.
When the staff realized that something was not right, they decided to inform the police. Cheshire police that tested the cake confirmed the presence of cannabis in it and destroyed the cake. “On noticing a strange odor from the cake senior staff notified Cheshire police who removed and subsequently destroyed the cake,” said the chief nurse Kimberley Salmon-Jamieson quoted Independent.
Another spokesman said that the officers were informed of a cake that was suspected to contain a drug. “Officers received a report on 27 May that a cake which was suspected to contain drugs had been brought into Warrington Hospital by a member of the public and given to staff," quoted Independent.
The hospital authorities also stated that the cake was only consumed by a single staff member. “Only one member of staff ate a small piece of cake, did not suffer any ill effects, did not care for any patients afterward and finished their shift, said the chief nurse Kimberley Salmon-Jamieson. However, a member of the staff claimed that three or four nurses had consumed the cannabis cake.
The investigation by the police proved that the man who got the cake was innocent and was not aware of the cannabis in the cake. “Following 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 the spokesman quoted Independent.
They also added that the police had already talked to all the people involved in the event. The police informed that no action was taken against the pensioner, however, the grandson was given some “strong words of advice.”
The case was therefore closed by the police.
