Las Vegas restaurant accused of lacing food with THC – WRAL News

— A Las Vegas woman says a restaurant drugged her food with THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana.

Other people online say the same thing happened to them.

“Their food is usually really tasty and we’ve never had a problem before,” said Samantha Diaz, one alleged victim. “But this was a problem.”

Diaz and her husband eat at the “Secret of Siam, a Thai restaurant in northwest Las Vegas, often. But on a recent visit, something was off.

Diaz took a curry dish home and experienced symptoms when she ate it two days later.

“I was like melting into my chair and I got all disoriented and heavy,” Diaz described. “I thought, what is happening here?”

Diaz was scared, thinking she might be having a stroke.

“I said to my husband, I said, ‘Honey? I think I’m high,’ and he was like, ‘Get out of here. We haven’t left the house in two days.'”

It wasn’t until Super Bowl Sunday that Diaz came across social media posts on Facebook and the Nextdoor app where people were sharing they had the same experience.

“I said, ‘Honey, get in here. I didn’t make it up,'” Diaz recalled.

There were multiple reviews about tainted food on the restaurant’s Yelp page, too, with some posting they went to the emergency room and tested positive for THC.

Just last week, the health district gave Secret of Siam an “A” rating.

The restaurant has been closed since Sunday, and the phone line has been disconnected.

Diaz said she called the health district and filed a police report. As a cancer survivor taking medication, she’s worried.

“You can’t drug people — if they choose to do it on their own, that’s their business,” Diaz said. “But, you know, you can’t mess with that stuff.”

Las Vegas Metro Police said they are investigating the validity of multiple reports of adulterated food from the restaurant.
