JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. – A Missouri family wants to know how a package containing mind-altering muffins ended up in the hands of their 4-year-old daughter.

According to KTVI, a mother and her daughter spent the night in the hospital after they ate treats from the package.

Mother Christine Braun said, “I couldn’t feel my body.”

Braun said her daughter had recently received a package of birthday gifts from a relative in San Clemente, California.

She said assumed another package that came a few days later from the same town was also birthday gifts for her daughter.

The mother said she ate one of the mini muffins and her daughter ate a candy from the mail sent to the girl.

She and her daughter started to feel sick and called 911.

“I kept having sensations that I went to the bathroom on myself,” Braun said. “I kept having sensations that my blood was really thick and the skin was going to break.”

KTVI reported doctors said the mother and daughter tested positive for highly concentrated levels of THC, the mind-altering drug in marijuana.

“The fact that it was addressed to my 4-year-old daughter is what scares me,” Braun said. “I don’t want this to happen to somebody else.”
