COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Pot-laced brownies have turned up at another Colorado school. A 14-year-old girl in Colorado Springs was sent to the hospital Wednesday after eating a marijuana brownie at Air Academy 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.
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.
Two students and an instructor were hospitalized for the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana, campus police said. Five others reported feeling sick after eating the brownies Friday.
