OSTERSUND, Sweden, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- A Swedish man who said the marijuana-related chemical in his blood was from accidentally eating spiked cake was cleared of drug charges.

The Ostersund District Court dropped the charges against the 27-year-old man, who had been arrested on narcotics allegations when he was pulled over on his way home from a dinner party and submitted to a blood test requested by police who suspected him of drug use, TheLocal.se reported Friday.

The man told the court the traces of tetrahydrocannabinol, the active chemical in marijuana, found in his blood were a result of eating a slice of cake he did not know had been spiked with the drug.

The court agreed the man seemed to have ingested the substance accidentally at the dinner party and the charges were dismissed.
