Metal detectorists spiked with space cakes
An act of ‘random lunacy’ put a group of Metal detectorists at serious risk. They were taken to hospital after unknowingly eating cakes apparently spiked with cannabis. In total, thirteen men and women fell ill after eating the cakes.
A spokesperson for the group said “People could have died. It was lucky that no children or people on medication with serious health problems ate the cake.”
Cannabis can have a powerful effect on individuals who have not taken the drug before. Those with underlying medical conditions are more at risk as the drug increases heart rate.
This incident shows that although some people think cannabis should be legalised, it is still a potent drug that can cause considerable harm to health.
The editor of Treasure Hunting Magazine commented “I think it was an irresponsible, poorly thought-through joke.” He also went on to say that the cakes were homemade, and had not been sold.

BSc (Hons) Bio Medical Science Company Founder and Director
I started the company back in 2005 as a post graduate in Bio Medical Science from John Moores University in Liverpool. I started out with a laboratory in Liverpool and opened 23 DNA Clinics around the UK. My passion has always been to provide people with the best possible advice and support for the testing service they are looking at. I feel we achieve this by having a team of highly educated and dedicated individuals, who also believe in my values.
A lot has happened since 2005 and I have learned a lot as a woman in business. I am proud of what we have achieved, and it still gives me great satisfaction to give opportunities to graduates as they start their careers as young scientists.
I am very much a family person outside of the business. My passion is spending quality time with my family, reading and walking my 4 beautiful dogs!
