Redditor Dreamblook was responsible for getting his entire family high when his unsuspecting mother cooked dinner using the cannabutter he'd stowed in the fridge. But don't worry—everything turned out fine…eventually. Well, for his family, at least.
It happened pretty much the way you'd expect from the headline—dude had left his cannabutter in his family fridge, and one night his mother, who had run out of regular butter, decided to use what she thought was vegan butter instead. (Insert pot-luck dinner joke here.)
Our man Dreamblook did what any person would do under crazy circumstances like this—he asked strangers on the internet if there was any sort of damage control he could pull off before his family began to feel the effects of the cannabis they'd ingested. I'm not sure what kind of answer he was looking for, but it definitely wasn't "Film them because it's bound to be funny."
He continued to post updates throughout the evening, including how his mom asked him if there could have been something wrong with his butter (he just told her it was "old"), and how she was freaking out and wanted to go to the hospital, while his father just sat there with a big grin on his face. He also mentioned that his uncle was barely affected and laughed every time he looked at Dreamblook, so it seemed like he knew what was up.
In one long update, Dreamblook explained that his uncle did indeed know, and had told Dreamblook's father, which is why his father wasn't freaking out. His mother, however, who had never done any drug ever, including alcohol, nicotine, or even caffeine, continued to go bananas and then threw up. At this point, she thought it was food poisoning (due to that "old" butter) and Dreamblook's uncle managed to calm her down a bit. Dreamblook stated that his mother finding out she accidentally "took weed" would make the situation "100x worse."
In another update, Dreamblook wrote that his mother started to feel better and "had some kind of epiphany about how boring her life is and how she wish [sic] she never gave up on doing art work." He and his "pothead" uncle decided to go ahead and finish the rest of the cannabutter, although it's unclear if they wanted to get higher or just get rid of the evidence. Anyway, the craziness wasn't over yet, as Dreamblook revealed in a final update to the post.
Dreamblook's sister, who'd eaten with them but gone straight to bed after dinner, woke up, felt awful, and called 911. When the EMTs arrived, Uncle Pothead told them she was high, so they took her to the hospital and then called the cops. Dreamblook was awoken by cops, who had arrested his uncle on a felony possession charge (all of this took place in Arizona, which has notoriously harsh drug laws), because he'd had his own weed on him at the time.
Once she found out the real deal, Dreamblook's religious mom was pretty not into it, and reacted by kicking him out. And that's where Dreamblook's story ends. Or at least our involvement in it. Good luck, young Dreamblook. May you live a long and fulfilling life where you never again leave drugs that look like real food in your family's refrigerator.
