An Omaha, Nebraska, father recently indulged in some of his children’s brownies only to discover they were laced with marijuana, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

On Tuesday, the man unloaded groceries from a car that his adult children had used earlier that day, and found some brownies — he ate four, the World-Herald reported.
Later, while watching television, the man reportedly began to display odd behavior. His wife told police he was getting “bad anxiety,” so she attempted to contact her children to ask them about the brownies.
According to the World-Herald, “Paramedics called to the scene who checked the man found his vital signs to be normal. But they noted that he was displaying odd behavior — crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities and calling the family cat a ‘bitch.’"
The man told paramedics he felt like “he’s trippin’.”
Police were dispatched to investigate the incident. One of the couple’s children told police that he suspected that his siblings’ brownies had marijuana in them.
The man declined the paramedics’ offer to take him to the hospital for treatment, so they helped him into bed and told his wife to call 911 if his condition worsened.
A World-Herald reporter tweeted that their newsroom, inspired by the father’s story, decided to enjoy some “pot-free” brownies.
