While prescription drugs may be kept far away from children, parents who illegally experiment with recreational drugs must exercise additional caution.
Cocaine, heroine among other recreational drugs are banned in several parts of the world. But 29-year-old Benny Garcia from Massachusetts was apparently, using them illegally.
His 5-year-old son was recently found carrying a powder-like substance in a decorative Spider-Man package at school, reports News 18. The toddler told his teacher that after tasting the powder inside the packet he becomes Spider-Man!
On investigation, it was found that the powder was cocaine. The kid was sent for medical examination but fortunately, the drug had caused him no lasting harm.
Police raided his father’s home in the city and found more than 200 packets of cocaine and heroin with him. He was held by the police under a non-bailable warrant until his proceedings begin.
