ATLANTA, GA — Two students and a school employee were taken to a local hospital Friday after apparently consuming brownies that had been laced with marijuana. The incident happened at South Atlanta High School, where school officials are now investigating claims that another employee brought the pot-laced brownies to school and handed them out to students.
According to an Atlanta school system spokesperson, “The school employee who is believed to be responsible has been removed from the school and faces disciplinary action pending the outcome of the investigation.”
The employee, according to Channel 2, is a veteran special education teacher at South Atlanta High School. All three people who were sickened by the brownies were treated and released.
Police responded to the school Friday afternoon after learning the three people who had consumed the brownies had fallen ill.
