The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office allegedly arrested a 20-year-old woman on Friday after an incident at a Bayonet Point home earlier in the month that resulted in two kids being airlifted to a St. Petersburg hospital.
According to reports, the incident that led to Bobbie Lynn Johnson’s arrest began to unfold on June 17 at their home.
Johnson accidentally left two packages of marijuana-laced gummy bears on a coffee table.
The children, ages 3 and 5, who also lived at the home, saw the packages and just couldn’t resist the sweet treat, the report said.
A short while after eating the pot-laced candy, the 3-year-old said she did not feel well and “she started to fade in and out of consciousness,” the report said.
Both children were “rushed” to the Bayonet Point Hospital emergency room, the report added.
Authorities say Johnson told someone over speaker phone that the kids ate gummy bears that contained 350mg of THC each, the report said.
While at the hospital in Bayonet Point, the 5-year-old also became sick, the report noted.
“As a result of eating the gummy bears, the children were Bayflighted to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg for further care,” the report said.
Johnson was arrested on June 30. She faces two counts of child abuse.
No further information is available at this time.
