In more and more countries of the world, this plant and its derivatives have ceased to be prohibited and have become legally marketable substances.
Although the commercialization and consumption of marihuana in many places is legal, it does not mean that its use is completely free of boundaries. There are some regulations to comply with, as there are with other controlled substances such as alcohol and cigarettes. However, there are always people who seem not to want to follow the rules and even have no common sense.
The Principality of Asturias Prosecutor’s Office, in Spain, requested 4 years and three months in prison for a man that gave marihuana cookies to his 14-year-old son.
It was reported that the Public Prosecutor’s Office claims that on February 6, 2021, the subject was at his residence in Oviedo with his son, to whom he had given the marijuana cookies.

The teen boy had to be taken to a hospital, feeling dizzy, nauseous, blurred vision, and general malaise. The authorities confirmed the presence of the narcotic in the boy’s system through a urine exam.
The Prosecutor’s Office considers that in this case there was a crime against public health for which it asks for 3 years and 6 months in prison and a big fine. Also, they requested 9 more months for the crime of injuries in the family environment.
Also, prosecutors requested the man to be excluded from custody for at least 2 years given that this occurred in the middle of a divorce process. He also faces a prohibition to physically approach his son nor to contact him by any means for at least 21 months.
