Funeral Turns To Chaos After Woman Accidentally Brings Cake Laced With Weed
Funerals can be a really emotional experience. You have loads of people coming together to farewell a loved one and then you usually hang out with said people at a wake to remember the good times.
While there are plenty of people who say they want their wake to be a fun affair, they're usually pretty sombre.
But one wake in Germany didn't go according to plan after people accidentally ate cake laced with weed.
According to the Guardian, people attending a funeral in the country's east went to a restaurant for coffee and cake, which is reportedly customary in Germany.
They all huddled together while the restaurant owner handed out cake to mourners. Little did the owner know that what she was actually giving away was weed cake.
Apparently, she picked up the drug laced cake from her fridge because her 18-year-old daughter had left it in there for a different occasion.
Thirteen people began experiencing symptoms of dizziness and nausea and had to get medical treatment.
The 18-year-old daughter is now under investigation.
The event is similar to one that occurred in the UK at a metal detecting convention. People got together to discuss the interesting field of metal detecting but there was also one patron who was celebrating their 50th birthday.
He was handing out bits of birthday cake without realising someone had laced it with loads of cannabis.
Sadly for those that chowed down on what they thought was delicious birthday cake, they did not take to the weed well.
A total of thirteen attendees had to be taken to hospital and two were treated at the scene due to adverse reactions, however it's not clear what exactly required them to be taken to hospital.
Julian Evan-Hart, editor of Treasure Hunting Magazine, said: "I think it was an irresponsible, poorly thought-through joke.
"This isn't a poor reflection on our hobby, the dig organisers or anyone else involved the planning of the event. It's just a case of random lunacy."
Mr Evan-Hart said while it was a 'dreadful incident', they don't believe the person who spiked the cake did it to inflict harm.
