Three people passed out in a Martha’s Vineyard restaurant. Officials say edibles are to blame.

The three were taken to a nearby hospital.

When Edgartown police and emergency crews responded to the Newes from America Pub on Friday night, they reportedly found two women and a man on the floor in varying states of consciousness.

The three had consumed marijuana edibles, Edgartown Police Chief Bruce McNamee later told the Martha’s Vineyard Times.

At one point, one of the women reportedly uttered this phrase:

“15 milligrams … THC … edible … all three… first time,” according to the newspaper.

The initial 911 call came in just after 8 p.m., the Times reported. It was for a woman, 60, who had fainted. When officials arrived, the other woman passed out when an officer touched her shoulder, according to the newspaper — he was trying to ask her to move so he could get to the 60-year-old woman.


The trio were reportedly from Pennsylvania and were staying on the island for the weekend. They were taken to the hospital.
