Nurses 'off their faces' after accidentally eating cannabis cake

Nurses 'off their faces' after accidentally eating cannabis cake Nurses were reportedly "off their faces" after a "nice old man" handed them a cake laced with cannabis as a thank you present. Police were called to Warrington Hospital in Cheshire after staff ate the red velvet sponge that was spiked with the class B drug. A grandfather, who wanted to thank the nurses for their care of a relative, is said to have been unaware of the cake's additional ingredient. He had taken it from his grandson's 18th birthday party before presenting it to nurses. Hospital bosses are said to have denied anyone consumed the cake, but Cheshire Police have confirmed it was eaten on the premises.

A cake mix-up that went viral is drawing national attention, but the whole scenario is a nightmare for one Georgia woman who lost her Dairy Queen job.

The incident started gaining attention on July 2, when Kensli Taylor Davis shared a Facebook post with a picture of her 25th birthday cake purchased from Dairy Queen. The cake shows a marijuana leaf and what appears to be a high "My Little Pony" smoking with bloodshot eyes.

Davis said her mother asked for a "Moana"-themed cake from a Milledgeville, Georgia, Dairy Queen. Instead, she got a marijuana-themed cake. The post has garnered more than 12,000 reactions and has been shared more than 13,000 times, mostly by people laughing at the mix-up.

July 10 (UPI) -- A Georgia woman said a miscommunication while ordering her birthday cake led to dessert having a marijuana theme rather than the intended Moana theme. Kensli Davis of Milledgeville said her mother ordered the cake from Dairy Queen and asked for the decoration to be inspired by

"I think they thought that she said 'marijuana' because we are from south Georgia and kind of have an accent. So, 'Moana,' marijuana?" Davis told WMAZ-TV in Georgia.

Cassandra Walker, the Georgia mother of two who made the cake, isn't laughing. She told USA TODAY she made the cake after her manager, who she says misheard Davis' mother, told her it was OK.

Walker said Dairy Queen fired her for the mistake on Monday, which was her birthday.

"It’s not funny to me," Walker said in a phone interview with USA TODAY. "This is back-to-school time. I have two little girls here. I have a car that needs fixing. It’s not funny to me."

Walker, who had worked at the Dairy Queen for roughly a year, said the process of making the now-viral cake was overseen by the manager who misheard the order.

Garrigus after marijuana suspension: 'Why are we testing for it?'

Garrigus after marijuana suspension: 'Why are we testing for it?' Robert Garrigus is set to return to the PGA Tour after he was given a three-month suspension in March for marijuana use. Prior to teeing off at the 3M Open this week, the 41-year-old discussed his punishment, one he doesn't think was warranted since the drug has been legalized in multiple states and can be prescribed for medical purposes. "If you have some sort of pain and CBD or THC may help that, and you feel like it can help you and be prescribed by a doctor, then what are we doing?" Garrigus said, according to Golf Channel's Will Gray. "If you are (testing) marijuana then we should be testing for alcohol, too.

"The manager stood behind me while I pulled the images off the internet," Walker said. "She walked by as I decorated the cake. As I boxed the cake up, she was the one who walked it up to the front."

She said she was told by Al Autry, who is one of the Dairy Queen's owners, that she couldn't be employed anymore.

"This was a simple misunderstanding from the beginning," Autry said in a statement to USA TODAY.

"Our cake decorator designed a cake based on what she thought she heard the customer order. When the customer picked it up and said it was not what she ordered, we immediately apologized for the error and offered to redesign it the way she originally intended. The customer said it was fine, paid for the cake and left."

The statement did not address Walker's claim that she was fired.

Walker said she spoke with both Davis and Davis' mother regarding the cake. She said both appear to be concerned with their "15 minutes of fame."

"I’m the one sitting here with two babies who need to be taken care of," Walker said. "It’s upsetting."

Walker added that by Thursday afternoon, a Dairy Queen manager — a different person from the one who approved the cake — had called and offered her her job back.

"Look at everything that it took," Walker said when asked why she declined the offer.

"Just send me on leave, write me up, any of those things, I would have been OK with those things."

Davis did not respond to a Facebook message from USA TODAY seeking comment.

Walker said since Georgia is an "employment-at-will" state, she doesn't have many options other than to move on. At this point, she just wants to be able to take care of her daughters, ages 9 and 14.

"It was a mistake," she said. "It could been considered a learning experience. I would have accepted that. I would have accepted being written up. But to be at this job for almost a year and not have a write-up, not be in trouble, and to just be let go because of mistake, it’s not funny to me.”


Rare sea turtles smash nesting records in Georgia, Carolinas.
Rare sea turtles are smashing nesting records this summer on beaches in the Southeast, with scientists crediting the egg-laying boom to conservation measures that began more than 30 years ago. Giant loggerhead sea turtles weighing up to 300 pounds (136 kilograms) crawl ashore to dig nests in the sand every summer along the southern Atlantic coast. While nesting typically occurs from May through August, record nest counts set in 2016 have already fallen in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
