Not Your Mom’s Brownies

“Man Sold Marijuana Edibles To Children Across Montgomery Co…
‘This defendant was targeting children as young as 11 years old to sell his drugs to,
embedding drugs in cereals and snack products that appeal to children. … [His] business supplying
drugs to children and encouraging children to be drug dealers is an egregious case.”
—Philadelphia news item

What, “edibles” in middle school?
And dealers too? Oh brother,
These kids are barely off one pot
Before they’re on another.
