New York Child Treated After Eating Marijuana Candy: Authorities

A 10-year-old boy in Rockland County was sent to the emergency room after eating cannabis-infused candy, authorities say. 

Police say it happened Sunday night after the child's father let the boy sit alone in the family's car where he found a package of sour gummies laced with medical marijuana.

Police say the Ramapo boy ate some of the candy and was taken to a hospital in Suffern where he was treated and released.

The boy's father, 37-year-old Ephraim Zagelbaum, of Spring Valley, was arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a child. Additional charges were possible. It wasn't clear if the father had a lawyer.
