Nurses at Warrington hospital were left unusually ‘relaxed’ after a granddad offered them cannabis-laced cake as a parting 'thank you'. The unnamed grandad wanted to thank the nurses who cared for his family member and decided to offer them his grandson’s 18th birthday, unaware that the cake he have them spiked with drugs. Following the consumption of the cake that left the nurses high, police were called to Warrington Hospital, in Cheshire, after staff who ate the red velvet cake appeared to be 'relaxed.'
According to The Manchester Evening News, a member of staff, who asked to remain anonymous, claimed “three or four” nurses ate the cake and were left “off their faces”.
“They were eating the cake and then the next minute the staff were all off their faces.
“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,” they told Manchester Evening News.
Cheshire Police tested the cake and confirmed it contained Class B drug and had been allegedly added to the baked treat to spice up the teenager’s birthday party, but his grandfather unwittingly took it to the hospital when he saw there was some left.
A police investigation into the incident found he had no idea what was in the cake and was shocked when he learnt of the mystery ingredient.
“It was genuinely an error by all parties, even the person who put something in that he shouldn’t have because he didn’t know it was going to the hospital.
“Nobody knew that, and that’s why we’re not taking it any further.”
"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."
