A three year-old boy dipped into his granny's cookie jar, and ended up landing himself in the hospital. The grandmother, who had been diagnosed with cancer, was using marijuana-laced cookies as part of her treatment.

Says LA Now:

"The child ate the 'medical marijuana stash' Saturday morning and was initially unresponsive when rescuers arrived at a home in the 24000 block of Cambria Lane, the Murrieta Police Department said in a statement. The boy was taken to a hospital for treatment and later released, police said, and county child services officials were contacted."

A police investigation is currently underway.
