Five children were sent to Victoria General Hospital after ingesting THC gummies on Friday.
Victoria police said the children, all under the age of 10, were at a barbecue when parents noticed they were behaving oddly.

The parents questioned the children, who said they had eaten candy they found while playing in a room.
The packaging of the THC gummies closely resembled a popular brand of candy.
The children were taken to hospital and later released. No foul play is suspected.
Police said the incident is a reminder that users should keep such edibles, which can resemble non-cannabis products, out of the reach of children.
Police said no foul play is suspected and no charges are anticipated.
