This week in 420-friendly news, an Omaha dad accidentally devoured four brownies laced with marijuana and of course, hilarity ensued.


According to police (yes, the police got involved), 53-year old, Michael Gollehon found the treats while unloading his groceries from his car, which he had let his adult children borrow earlier that day. Gollehon’s wife noticed her husband was getting some “bad anxiety” while the two were sitting on the couch watching TV and called 911.  But by the time police and paramedics arrived on the scene, things had gone totally off the rails.

“They noted that he was displaying odd behavior — crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities and calling the family cat a ‘bitch.'”

FYI, the family cat is named Kipper, and I’m sure her response was something like:

Or maybe it was more like:

Michael also told paramedics (who said his vital signs were normal) that he felt like he was “trippin’.” While police were at the house, one of the couple’s adult children arrived home and told police this odd behavior was “pretty sure it was just marijuana in the brownies” and said that the edibles “belonged to his siblings.” Suuuure.


Paramedics then tucked the poor dad into bed and told him to call 911 if the “situation worsened.” Not sure what they meant by that, but I can only imagine.

Michael is feeling better now, though he’s gotten a rep around Omaha as the “Pot Dad.” More importantly, we hope Kipper didn’t suffer any hurt feelings!
