A grandmother from Denver was being investigated for allegedly giving her 3-year-old grandson a cookie made with cannabis butter. Sadly, the 44-year-old woman took her own life a week after the incident with her grandson.
Apparently, Erin Marcove gave her grandson at least one peanut butter cookie made using cannabis butter on December 4, as related by family members. The following day, Marcove had to call an ambulance as she had difficulty rousing the little boy. The toddler has since fully recovered. However, a police report showed that he had marijuana in his system at the time that he was taken to the hospital.
A jar of cannabis butter was found in Marcove’s home by police. She was an advocate of medical marijuana and has been using cannabis to treat chronic back pain.
