VENETA, Ore. (AP) – A toddler has recovered after possibly ingesting LSD at a campground near the Oregon Country Fair.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says the parents found the boy on the Fourth of July with a piece of tinfoil that had dots on it, resembling LSD. Within minutes, the child started acting strangely.

The boy who is 19 months old was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to a Portland children’s hospital. He has since been released.

The Register-Guard reports the substance is being tested to determine if it is the psychedelic drug.

The parents and toddler were staying at a campground near the fair property, several days before the free-wheeling event officially began.

The sheriff’s office says the parents are not facing charges because there’s no indication they possessed whatever substance the child ingested.
