“The child did say they were using marijuana and they did take a drug test and they passed the drug test,” said Cook County Sheriff’s Police Deputy Chief Michael Anton. “They inquired, ‘how could you pass it?’ and this individual said he purchased it. Where did you purchase it? At this location.”
The deputy chief went as far as to send out a sample of said product off to the lab to see if it’d pass. He said it does work.
