A 12- year-old boy has allegedly gone mad after consuming toffee suspected to be laced with cannabis at Otenkrom in the Western region.
According to an eyewitness Jibril, who is currently on admission at the hospital, started behaving abnormally after eating the locally made toffee popularly referred to as ‘wodaa woda’ loosely translated to mean “you will sleep deeply” in local parlance.
The locally made toffee and other toffees, are mainly produced by wee smokers and are sold illegal mostly in Enchi, Otengkrom, Aowin, Suaman and their environs.
The eye witness told Adom News: “Jibril started jumping from one end to the other after purchasing the toffee with his chop money and feeling very hot and started shouting until he was rushed to the hospital".
