Police were called to assist EMS workers at a cottage in Whitestone, located north of Parry Sound, who were treating a 60-year-old man who fell ill after eating brownies made with cannabis marijuana. The man was treated and released, but his son — who baked the brownies from marijuana plants he had growing in his back yard — was later charged by the OPP.

Police seized a total of 22 marijuana plants, 506 grams of cannabis marijuana brownies and 408 grams of cannabis marijuana stalks and leaves — with a street value of about $28,600.

The 27-year-old from Stevensville, Ont. was charged with production and possession of a controlled substance.

Police report the accused will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Parry Sound on Oct. 10, to answer to the charges.
