NEW HAVEN, Conn.—A 5-year-old New Haven girl was hospitalized Monday after accidently ingested the hallucinogenic drug PCP, according to the ctpost.com.
Police said the child’s mother, 26-year-old Hope Brodie, cooked “Angel Dust” in a pot in the home, then another person prepared dinner for the child in the same pot.
The 5-year-old was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital’s pediatric emergency room suffering from what police say was “internal irregularities” after eating the dope-laced food.
Brodie has been charged with risk of injury to a minor.
Police say the child remained hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday and did not suffer any life-threatening problems.
The Department of Children and Families was notified.
Brodie was released on bond and is due in court May 8.
