This could have ended so, so much worse:
Bombardier Chelsea Cogswell, a Canadian soldier who has served in the military since 2011, allegedly served the Mary Jane cakes to her fellow soldiers before a live-fire exercise in New Brunswick back in 2018.
Bombadier Cogswell was apparently in charge of the grub that day and decided to offer the cupcakes to her entire unit before they went and fired massive guns long distances.
"All the members of W Battery who consumed the cupcakes, except one, allegedly experienced symptoms which included dehydration, overheating, fatigue, confusion, dry mouth and paranoia," said court documents.
Like I said, this could have gone so much worse. Can you imagine a bunch of stoned-out-of-their-minds, paranoid soldiers firing Howitzer's willy-nilly?
Cogswell is facing 18 charges and a court martial. The funniest of the charges is "administering a noxious substance."
She has not responded publicly to the charges or explained if she made or bought the laced treats.
A government spokeswoman said this was the first time someone is facing a court martial for giving weed to fellow soldiers "without their consent," which makes me wonder how many are dishing out marijuana to their fellow soldiers with their consent.
Oh well. Even if Canadian soldiers are getting baked on a regular basis, at least they'll still be more operationally ready than America's new woke army.
