Man Arrested for Serving His Girlfriend & Her 1-Year-Old Son Cake

This man is not a keeper. A Chicago man has been accused of feeding his girlfriend and her 1-year-old son cake -- which sounds nice. But it isn't. Allegedly the man had baked marijuana into the cake and watched as they ate it unawares that they were being drugged.

Emmanuel Ekaette has been charged with a variety of offenses after he allegedly baked a cake and brought it over to his girlfriend and her young son. He then apparently watched the woman eat it, while feeding some to her son, and when asked what the "crushed leaves" in the cake were, lied that it was spices.

The woman then reportedly started feeling "hazy" and got herself and her toddler to the hospital, where they both tested positive for marijuana.

Ick! Who would DO this not only to his girlfriend but to her baby?

Innocent until proven guilty and all of that, but if this is true, I hope to god this woman knows enough to get away from this dude! If he'd do this, who knows what else he would do.

Yes, pot eating is done by many -- and maybe they get off on it. But you don't drug people who aren't aware of what is happening. That is a complete and total betrayal of trust. And you never know how someone is going to react to a drug.

And you especially don't sit there and watch as a child eats your drugs. Despicable creature.

Have you ever had anyone slip you drugs?

Says it was a relative. Not her son. What a horrible boyfriend.

My sister crushed up sleeping pills in her husbands dinner once. She thought it was the funniest thing in the world. He was beyond mad when he found out, but did nothing about it.

 brittneyleigh88  You must have read a different article than I did because the one I got when I licked the link in pink use the words "her son" & "her child" several times.

that should say "clicked the link"  not licked the link.   I need a new keyboard.  Half the letters on this one don't work half the time.   bang head on keyboard

Hey, if you put reg weed in baked goods it bakes the T H C out of it. So now what.......

Okay, first off no, you do not bake the HTC out. S3condly, so what? You people need to stop buying into the propaganda and do some research. If marijuana was legal in Texas you better believe I'd give some to my kids in a treat. It's been scientifically proven to improve brain growth and function. As a proud member of NORML and Moms for Marijuana, I urge everyone to get out of their DARE mind and do some actual research before passing judgement. Now, that being said, I would never "sneak" drugs to an individual, that is beyond wrong.

I really wish some of these writers were more knowledgeable. First off, learn grammar. "They ate it unawares"? Second, minor detail, but get the story straight. They went to his house and he offered them cake. He didnt bring it to her.

on another note, she said it exacerbated her anxiety? Doesnt weed make you chill out? Not get anxious? Just saying. Ive never heard or seen anyone get an anxiety attack when high.

And @christine, if baking weed bakes the thc out of it why do so many people make "pot baked goods"??
