This is just another sign of how polarized the country has become. Even as states are legalizing weed, liberal California wants to call it a poison.

Alright, this autoplay bullshiat needs to stop.

And that's a scary looking biatch.

Poison?  Really?  I hate the smell of pot and would probably get pissy and uptight if anyone offered me some, but it's no more a poison than tobacco is.

/Parse that however you want, since I hate tobacco as well

If you've never been high before in your life and got a strong dose of edibles, I can only imagine you would freak and it would be anything but enjoyable.  NOT COOL.

Yeah.....it's a dick move to do that, but poisoning just doesn't seem like the right term.  Meh.

Well, food was involved...assault with intent to pepper?

Salt & Pepper chips with Siracha dip would be the BOMB right now.  Why am I so hungry?

I reflexively closed the auto-play video page before I could find out:  Did she try to sneak some pot into people or merely offer it to them openly?
 
2014-01-25 02:52:05 PM
If they laced it with a prescription painkiller, I'd call it poisoning. I think it's the right term.

At least she wasn't farking her students.

That's what I think too when a non farking student story pops up.  I wonder how effective if would be if that's what she says to the judge, and if it'll work?

Fixing pot-laced food for a get together with your stoner friends = being the hostess with the mostest.

Fixing pot-laced food for a get together with a bunch of people you're not sure have ever used weed = being a guest of the state penal system.

To all of those going "ZOMG POISON?", I'm pretty sure that's just the generic legal term for, you know, slipping a drug into a food or drink product without the other party's knowing legal consent. I'm pretty sure getting someone with a date rape drug in their drink is also considered poisoning.
 
2014-01-25 03:05:49 PM
What was the actual food that caused the poisoning? Did she go through the trouble of whipping up the pot butter and bake a cake or did she simply dump a bunch of buds into some soup or something?

Also, it took a freaking month to figure this one out? Nice job, boys.

"Badger allegedly confessed her involvement to individuals who were also at the party, Hartig said, but she did not admit that to police."


Yes because when something happens that the police will investigate, they won't interview any witnesses you may have blabbed your crime to.

I guess at the next potluck party they won't need no stinkin' Badgers.

 
2014-01-25 03:12:52 PM
I just stick to putting gracious quantities of roundup in food of get-togethers.

/Monsanto says its not a poison, I think.
//And a Taser has never killed a person, according to Taser corp.
///Pissing in the coffee pot at work is still ok, right?
////A druggee spitting on a cop is called 'a lethal biological weapon of attempted murder'.
 
2014-01-25 03:14:45 PM
This would constitute assault and nothing more.

I'm no looker, but she appears to have had the bad luck to be hit in the face with a pot.

They could also charge her if she spiked the punch bowl, or put pain killers in the pudding.  So, that may put your argument into perspective.  It's about putting non-food substances in food for the purpose of messing with unknowing individuals.  And since some sought medical attention, it falls in that line.

I'm thinking she wanted to get rid of some coworkers.  They eat, they get tested, and they get fired.  She gets a new parking spot.  Only now she doesn't have to commute.

ANY psychoactive substance, even one as relatively harmless as cannabis, given to people without their knowledge and consent is effectively poisoning them.  I'm 100% pro pot legalization, and idiots like this... THEY'RE NOT HELPING!  Smoke/eat your own weed, share it with friends, whatever, don't farking give it to people without their prior knowledge, that is NOT COOL.
 
2014-01-25 04:10:52 PM
Her defense should be, Well no one at the CIA went to jail when they dosed people with LSD without their knowledge.
 
2014-01-25 04:11:42 PM
Hopefully she'll at least be fired

You can't do any physical damage to a human body with food laced with pot.  You can kill people with prescription drugs.

As someone who has been poisoned with prescription antipsychotics, I believe people who do this are lowlife scum.  I just about killed someone in a car crash when the effects hit me.  I bet she thought it would be super funny at the time. Stupid biatch.
 
2014-01-25 05:49:15 PM
The victims should've just put on some old bugs bunny cartoons and rode it out.

Marijuana is to poison as Justice is to the US Justice system.

I'd actually consider it poisoning if someone put a bunch of tobacco in my food. Bottom line it's using a drug to maliciously adulterate someone's food without their knowledge or consent.

Spiked punch equals poisoning with poison?
 
2014-01-25 09:31:35 PM
What is the LD50 of this poison?

You do know that nicotine  used to be used as pesticide, right? And that you nicotine poisoning is a thing?

Definitely not cool. don't give anyone any mind/mood altering substance without their full awareness and consent.
 
2014-01-26 03:20:09 AM
In this case, she deserves what she has coming.   For anyone who says "it's just pot", well yeah.  It is, and nobody will die from the toxicity.  But imagine if, unbeknownst to you, you were dosed with a perfectly safe, but mind blowing drug.  It doesn't kick in until 1-2 hours after you were dosed, so you come up at a seemingly random time.  It's a drug you've never had before, so you don't recognize the effects, whether it's toxic, or whether it's even a drug and not a physical condition like a brain tumor, stroke, or aneurysm.  Remember, you're absolutely hardcore tripping balls (edibles are strong!).  It's not unreasonable to ask to go to a hospital in such a situation.  That said, the hospital should be able to quickly diagnose that it's just pot and that you can get a ride home and sleep it off.

Unfortunately, that conflicts with the business model of most hospitals, but that's a whole other issue...

It all depends. Keep in mind though I am a herb smoking independent (not lib/conserve) hippy.

THC is poison to some. Two friends have allergic reactions to even touching the plant which can kill them. My step-mom, if she were to have even a small piece of a laced brownie, she would die (if her heart exceeds +20 BPM, she dies, period even if it is going from 70-90 inside a normal range). One doesn't know if Joe-blow or his mom have problems with it.

There are pot allergies.

And I consider sour cream to be a poison, too.
