Both Const. Jamie Young and Const. Vittorio Dominelli were on duty that evening after raiding a dispensary in midtown Toronto. The raid led to seven people being arrested and charged. 

Young was responsible for the cannabis and edibles that were seized during the raid. It was found that Young did not account for three chocolate bars, one of which she and Dominelli ate. 

The two police officers finished at the raid around 11:00 P.M. and were then stationed outside in a car to watch the premises wearing normal street clothes. They at some point ate the chocolate bar before calling for help around 1:00 A.M.

Dominelli called for a "10-33", code that is known for "officer needs assistance", and documents show that he felt like he was going to pass out while running down Oakwood Avenue. Young just flat out dialed 911. 

Paramedics deemed both officers in distress when they were found, though they were not together but within the same area. They then went to the hospital and admitted to other officers that they had consumed the cannabis-infused chocolate. 

Another officer obtained an injury while responding to Dominelli's call by slipping on ice, who was also transported to the hospital.

Other officers who found Young and Dominelli's belongings confirmed that there were three packages, two wrapped and one unwrapped, that matched the cannabis products seized in the raid that day. 

Young is facing four misconduct charges and Dominelli faces six. Both officers are currently suspended without pay and will go through a police hearing process once the criminal charges are concluded with.
