Ohio Chief Who Ate Pot-Laced Cake Thought He Was Dying

An Ohio police chief who accidentally ate a marijuana-laced cake continues to recover from a poisoning he believed would kill him.

Laurelville Police Chief Mike Berkemeier told WBNS, "I thought I was dying," after eating an entire cake laced with hash oil (a concentrated form of THC) that had been left in his kitchen by his younger daughter's friend.

Berkemeier ate the cake during Easter weekend. The younger daughter's friend had accidentally left the cake when the two hastily left the house to visit Berkemeier's older daughter who had been hospitalized after a traffic accident, reports The Logan Daily.

Berkemeier drove himself to the police station, where medics transported him to the hospital for treatment.

Let's see...he ate an entire cake?! Are they sure it was the hash that made him feel like he was dying or all those calories he just crammed in his face? BTW, I'm glad he is going to be okay in either event.

So what happens to the friend? I am sure his daughter had some knowledge of the secret ingredient. I am glad he was not dying but would like to hear why he thought he was. Stay safe.

I'm glad he is fine, but lets take a guess, didn't it taste funny? I also think the whole cake is a bit much, 1/2 a cake would make me think I was dying. Not placing fault, just saying.

An entire cake, I bet his arteries are hardening as we speak. I am sure the girl in the hospital would have appreciated the cake more.

I have never heard of Laurelville, it has to be close to Mudsock, Ohio
