Melatonin-laced "relaxation" brownies raise eyebrows of doctors and nutritionists.

A new snack billed as "relaxation brownies" are popping up in tobacco shops.

They have extremely high doses of melatonin, the hormone that puts you to sleep.

Made of natural ingredients like rose hips and velarian root, "Lazy Cakes" are perfectly legal.

The key ingredient, melatonin, isn't regulated or evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Each "Lazy Cake" has two servings of 3.9 mg of melatonin, that's a total of almost
8 mg if you ate the entire brownie.
