Ischia, employees of a cleaning company find three candies in a hotel room and swallow them: drunk. “Maybe they contained cannabis”

Tests will determine what was in the sweets that poisoned three people yesterday morning in a hotel in Ischia. The three employees of a cleaning company, aged 55, 53 and 17 respectively, ended up in the emergency room of the Rizzoli hospital where they complained of dizziness and confusion. The symptoms appeared after taking some gummy sweets, found while they were booking a room in a hotel in Forio. Given the symptoms, the diagnosis was that of suspected food poisoning, but health workers, suspicious of the story, then alerted the police. Blood tests of the three workers revealed significant values ​​of cannabinoids in the blood, consistent with those found when ingesting THC, one of the main active ingredients in cannabis. The active ingredient was probably contained in the sweets swallowed, a product available over the counter in other foreign countries. In the meantime, the police have found that the occupants of the room are two American tourists, aged 37 and 31 and with no criminal record. They were questioned. The three employees were released from the hospital a few hours later.
