A Broadneck High student gave a teacher a marijuana-laced brownie at school this afternoon. After eating the brownie, the teacher became disoriented and went to the nurse.
The student was questioned and admitted to giving the teacher the brownie and knowing that it contained marijuana. The school did not post the letter about the incident to their website as they have done in the past, but distributed it through the “blackboard” system which is an opt-in communications tool utilized by the Anne Arundel County Public Schools.
The text of the screen capture reads:
I am writing you to let you know about an incident that occurred at school today. One of our teachers was given a brownie by a student and, soon thereafter, began to become disoriented. She was seen by the school nurse and told the nurse about eating the brownie. The nurse immediately summoned me and I sent an administrator to get the student so he could be questioned. The student admitted to giving the teacher the brownie and knowing it contained marijuana.
We are still investigating this matter and will provide more information if it is warranted. More immediately, however, I wanted you let you know of this matter so that if your child exhibits any unexplained symptoms, you would know about this issue and be able to relay it to any appropriate medical or other personnel.
Police are also continuing to investigate. Separate from their investigation, our school will take appropriate action in accordance with the Code of Student Conduct with regard to the student involved.
I urge you to talk with your child about this matter and encourage them to only consume food that they bring to school or that is purchased at our school.
Thank you, and have a good evening.
