Two hotel housekeepers in Vermont were hospitalized Wednesday after they unknowingly ate marijuana edibles, according to a report by Fox News.

“Two employees at the Inn at Shelburne Farms fell ill this morning after ingesting something that came from outside of Shelburne Farms. They have been taken to the hospital and we hope they will make a full recovery soon. We are doing our best to be careful about protecting the privacy of our employees,” the hotel said in a statement to the Burlington Free Press.

The “salted caramel chocolates” — which looked similar to the popular “Whoppers” malted milk balls candy — were so potent that one of the two women was found lying in the driveway of the hotel.

Shelburne police told the Burlington Free Press that the couple who left the candy in their room when they checked out would not be charged.

ROFL When will people learn not to eat things that they have no idea where they came from. They are lucky it didn't contain something deadly.

A lot of these people that these things are happening to don't have enough brain left to sound a warning that whatever this may be might be bad or fatal for them. Marijuana destroys brain cells over time and I can attest to that having been a jail officer for over a decade. These people would come in over and over again blasted out of their minds and after about 30 days they would finally realize where they were. Drugs are bad folks, plain and simple.
