(Newser) – A middle-aged Nebraska dad who found himself accidentally tripping on pot brownies this week was apparently finally feeling free enough to tell his cat how he really feels. The Omaha World-Herald reports the unnamed 53-year-old man's adult children left their marijuana brownies in the back of his car. He found them Tuesday night and—unaware they were special—ate four. He started getting "bad anxiety" while watching TV, and his wife called 911.

Paramedics determined the man was OK apart from his behavior: He was, as the World-Herald puts it, "crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities, and calling the family cat 'a bitch.'" He said he felt like he was "tripping." Paramedics put the man to bed, and no charges were filed. Marijuana Politics points out minor marijuana possession hasn't been an arrestable offense in Nebraska since the 1970s.
