In a frightening version of every parent's trick-or-treating nightmare, a five-year-old Ohio boy was rushed to the hospital and tested positive for meth. The boy had been trick-or-treating and was playing with fake vampire teeth.

The parents realized something was wrong when the boy suffered a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital where he tested positive for the illegal substance. The local police took the candy and fake teeth into evidence to figure out the source.

"This does not happen often. I think parents should always be concerned, looking at the candy. Look for anything that looks out of place, if the candy bag is open or ripped, throw it away," said Police Chief Brian Saterfield.

It was a horrifying incident few could imagine happening to them.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

"We know that the child tested positive for methamphetamine, but we don't know what kind," Chief Saterfield said. "The average person that sees the headline automatically thinks crystal meth, but we don't know if it was an illegal drug, a prescription drug or what."

The boy is expected to make a full recovery.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
