Pot-laced brownies turn up at another CO school
COLORADO SPRINGS — Pot-laced brownies have turned up at another Colorado school. A 14-year-old girl in Colorado Springs was sent to the hospital today after eating a marijuana brownie at a high school.
The (Colorado Springs) Gazette reports that another student is accused of giving her the brownie. The 14-year-old boy was arrested and released to his parents.
Police tell the newspaper that the girl knew what was in the brownie before she ate it. She has not been arrested.
A school district spokeswoman says the district has not seen a rise in marijuana incidents since approval last month of legalized marijuana for adults over 21.
Last week, two students at the University of Colorado in Boulder were arrested for allegedly giving a professor and other students pot-laced brownies without their knowledge.
