Pot brownies are nothing new to the high school scene. Recently, an eighth-grader in Denver was caught bringing one into school, and high school students at band camp were caught handing them out to 23 classmates.
Now, a California student, Salvador Palacios, 18, is being charged with food poisoning and child endangerment for putting hash oil in another student’s brownie. In the other recent cases, although the students were cited and punished, they were not charged nearly as severely. Palacios’ bail is set at $75,000.
