You may or may not remember back in 2014 when a mother was shot by someone high on cannabis. As a result, her sons have decided to sue the recreational marijuana industry, and this is the first time we have seen such a thing. The lawsuit states that the company that sold the marijuana to Richard Kirk did not tell him of the strength and possible side-effects of the product. Some side effects include hallucinations and other psychotic reactions.

On April 14th, 2014, Kirk bought cannabis edibles. Hours later, Kristine Kirk, 44, had to call the police because of her husband who was screaming about the rapture and jumping in and out of windows. All three of the sons heard the gunshots that resulted in the mother’s death.

A complaint that was put in on Monday night states that their youngest son at the age of seven saw their mother die. At the moment, Kirk is now in jail for first-degree murder. The kids, now aged 9, 13, and 15, Kristine’s parents – Wayne and Marti Kohnke – as well as her sister, Tamara Heman have also decided to take legal action. The three now take care of the boys.

“While nothing can bring their parents back, this lawsuit will seek justice and change in an edible industry that is growing so fast it failed these young kids,” Greg Gold and David Olivas, the attorneys, said. “Edibles themselves are not the evil; it is the failure to warn, the failure to properly dose, the failure to tell the consumer how to safely use edibles, that is the evil.”

A bitten-into “Karma Kandy Orange Ginger” was found at the residence after the shooting. The candy was about the size of a Tootsie Roll and had up to ten servings of THC. This means that each serving had around ten milligrams which equals a total of a hundred milligrams.
