Day care staff learns cookies that made them ‘high’ were drug-free

A dozen day care staff members who said they felt “high” after eating cookies were told the treats actually contained no illicit substances, reports The Associated Press.

Staff at Watch Me Shine day care in Bangor, Maine said they ate the cookies a parent dropped off on Valentine’s Day and began to feel intoxicated. Authorities were alerted and they seized the remaining cookies for testing.

The results came back Monday, revealing that none of the cookies had tested positive for controlled substances.

After the incident, the day care began to prohibit outside food for children and staff. None of the children consumed any of the cookies in question.
