HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) -- Three senior citizens are hospitalized after unknowingly eating pot brownies during a memorial service for a friend.

The victims, who are in their 70s and 80s, were admitted to Hoag Hospital on Saturday complaining of "nausea, dizziness, and inability to stand unassisted" after eating the brownies.

"At the service, a tray of brownies were offered that has since been determined to have contained 'medical' marijuana," Huntington Beach Police Department officials said.

"No one was told the brownies contained the marijuana before they were consumed."

All three victims are going to be okay.

Investigators say someone brought the brownies as a tribute to the deceased, who apparently used medical marijuana on a regular basis
