OROVILLE — A mother and grandmother have been charged with child abuse after prosecutors said a 2-year-old girl ingested edible marijuana that “looked like gummy candies.”

The Butte County District Attorney’s Office said Maneeka Patterson, 21, and her mother-in-law Patricia Medina, 57, have each been charged with a felony count of child abuse likely to produce great bodily harm or death.

Oroville police on June 15 performed a welfare check on the 2-year-old after she was reportedly unresponsive, according to prosecutors. Officers found the child consumed edible marijuana, and she was taken to Oroville Hospital by ambulance.
