On July 21, police in Panama City responded to an apartment after receiving a report about the child “possibly overdosing” and found the toddler “conscious but severely impaired,” law enforcement officials said.

The baby's 23-year-old mother, Kaitlyn Marie Kiczek, told detectives that “she had a 500mg THC extract chocolate bar in her handbag and further stated that she left her 2-year-old and a 4-year-old sibling unattended, and the 2-year-old began consuming the edible,” officials said.
