In recent weeks, students in California and Illinois have become ill from eating marijuana-laced brownies they got at school.
Over an eight-day period in early February, six students in Evanston, Ill., were hospitalized after eating brownies laced with marijuana, according to a school website. Two students in Elm Grove, Calif., were taken by ambulance to a hospital. A junior at Sacramento's Florin High School who complained of sickness after eating a brownie was examined by emergency personnel and sent home. And the principal of Albany Middle School in California's Bay area e-mailed parents that at least three students there had been sickened by pot brownies.
Is it a trend or just a random cluster? Officials aren't certain.
