Two 16-year-old, fe­male Al­covy High School students have been sus­pended af­ter an in­ci­dent in which one baked brown­ies con­tain­ing marijuana and an­other ate the brown­ies be­fore school Mon­day.

“One of the 16 year olds was at home and she de­cided to make some brown­ies and in­cor­po­rated some marijuana into the recipe,” said Lt. Keith Crum, with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice. “She then baked them and wrapped them up in alu­minum foil and brought the brown­ies with her to the bus stop where she met with the other 16-year-old girl, who ac­cepted the brown­ies, knew there was marijuana in them and ate them.”

Crum said the in­ci­dent hap­pened some time be­tween 7:25 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. He said when the girl ar­rived at school, she be­gan to com­plain about stomach pains and she started feel­ing dizzy and tired.

“She went to the nurse and con­fided that she ate brown­ies that had marijuana and the prin­ci­pal was no­ti­fied along with school re­source of­fi­cers,” Crum said. “The in­ves­ti­ga­tion was started and they were able to iden­tify the stu­dent who had brought the

brown­ies and re­moved the stu­dent from the class­room and there was ad­di­tional brown­ies found on her.”

Crum said the stu­dent with the brown­ies was turned over to ju­ve­nile court and her par­ents were no­ti­fied. He said the brown­ies were sent to the Ge­or­gia Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion crime lab for test­ing.

Sherri Davis-Viniard, di­rec­tor of pub­lic re­la­tions for the New­ton County School Sys­tem, said both students have been sus­pended from school pend­ing a tri­bunal hear­ing. She said the girl who ate the brown­ies was taken to the hospi­tal by her mother on Mon­day and is do­ing fine.
