Arrests following cannabis "edibles" incident in Godalming
Main article content
We have made two arrests after two people were taken to hospital after eating cannabis "edibles" on Sunday night (6 June).
A 20-year-old man from Godalming was arrested today on suspicion of administering a noxious substance and is currently in custody.
A 41-year-old woman was arrested on Sunday (6 June), on suspicion of the same offence but has since been released with no further action.
Both people who were taken to hospital, including a 15-year-old boy, have since been released.
They had both been at the same address in Godalming earlier that evening.
Waverley Borough Commander Inspector Sam Adcock said: "We are continuing to build on the information we have already as to where these sweets came from, and have made a further arrest today.
"We are asking parents across the county to urgently speak to their children about the dangers of "edibles" and urge them to not be tempted to try them as they can obviously cause substantial harm.
“These types of products, which may be marketed as ‘cannabis infused’ or ‘THC infused’ are illegal, and therefore unregulated, in the UK. They can appear to be commercial products with professional packaging, but this should not be taken as a sign that they are safe or legal."
Anyone who is concerned about the health of someone that they believe may have taken these products is asked to call the NHS 111 (999 in an emergency).
If you have information about the supply of these sweets, or if you have find similar sweets or related packaging, please do not destroy them, but contact Surrey Police via the online chat on our website (www.surrey.police.uk) quoting reference PR/P21120295.
