Donegal GP issues warning over cannabis jellies

A Donegal GP is warning parents about the dangers of their children eating cannabis jellies.


Temple Street Hospital in Dublin says the problem has worsened this year – describing it as a ‘new phenomenon’.


Six children under 10 have been hospitalised in the past six months, after eating large amounts of the jellies.


Some needed intensive care, and The Irish Medical Organisation’s Dr Denis McCauley ,says the products can be fatal.
