Eatontown man slipped edible weed to 13-year-old, police report
A 13-year-old girl's first encounter with edible marijuana leaves her stupefied, and she didn't know she ate it, according to police in Monmouth County's Ocean Township who arrested an Eatontown man..
Eric Morales, 32, is charged with child endangerment, and possession and distribution of marijuana, in connection with the August 6 incident.
Police said that the two are related, and that the teen was visiting Ocean Township. She unknowingly ingested the drug and developed "an altered state of mind," authorities said, adding that Morales sought no medical help.
Investigators did not pinpoint the spot where the incident took place, nor did they elaborate on the nature of their relationship or circumstances that preceded the incident.
Morales was detained in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution in Freehold, with a first court appearance yet to be scheduled.
Charges are accusations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless, and until, found guilty in a court of law..
