I’ve heard my fair share of bizarre drug related news but here’s another one to add to my list. It seems like the marijuana-fever in Colorado is not dying down anytime soon.
Two University of Colorado students, Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19, have been arrested for allegedly feeding marijuana-laced brownies to their unsuspecting classmates and professor as part of a class “bring food day” project.
Everything seemed to be going well until a few of their classmates and the professor started exhibiting classic signs of marijuana high – dizziness, euphoria, in and out of consciousness and anxiety.
An investigation revealed that the three hospitalized victims – and five other classmates – were suffering from the effects of marijuana, police said. The three hospitalized victims have since been released.
Cunningham and Essa were interviewed by police on Saturday evening and admitted that the brownies contained marijuana, police said.
They were arrested on suspicion of four felonies: second-degree assault, inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means, conspiracy to commit second-degree assault and conspiracy to commit inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means.
