Two students have been arrested after they brought brownies laced with marijuana to class and shared them with their unwitting professor and colleagues, authorities said.

Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and 19-year-old Mary Elizabeth Essa allegedly made the snacks for “bring food day” at Colorado University on Friday.

A female professor was taken to hospital after she began to lose consciousness while teaching at the Hellems Arts and Sciences Building. …

Yeah, but eating it, if you’re not used to it, is a whole nother deal from smoking it.

I don’t have any problem with people who get high, I used to be one of them, and I’ve enjoyed more than my share of HQ MJ in my life.

However eating a MJ laced brownie if properly prepared is extremely potent, especially if one does not have a tolerance for THC.

It is somewhat similar to an LSD trip, although not quite as intense, but it’s close enough. If a person was not expecting this, it could easily be panic inducing or worse.

poisoning people.

or do you consider these to be “consenting” adults?

It does not matter if it can kill them or not.

I’m kidding around, but my office is very boring. And getting the rest of the afternoon off, to go home and watch the Three Stooges would be a bonus. Plus, I could sue the company for damages the next day.

Heh. I understand. But even assuming one can get home safely after a brownie is not 100%. I mean, I am not certain why it works that way when ingested, but it is a freight train and the effects last a good 8-12 hours.

Shuold have a good 45 minutes after eating before it hits in though.

These guys should have known better. Probably not their first batch of brownies. I do imagine they will be in some trouble for this.

These two are phukin idiots.

I would treat them the same way fools who ‘spike’ the punchbowl at the senior prom are treated. It’s the very same
stupid stunt... except that the alcohol spiked punch is IMO the more dangerous of the two.

Yep, no dount that is possible. it is an hallucenogenic, and a potent one at that depending highly on the quality.

Certainly paranoia and panic can result from such a drug.

There was some audio of a cop making a 911 call explaining to the dispatcher how he had stolen some weed from a bust and made them into some brownies, and now he and his girlfriend were in the process of dying from eating them.

Of course while he was dying he also asked the dispatcher for some sports scores or something. This guy was completely in la la land from these brownies. Pretty sure he got arrested and fired.

When I was in high school chemistry class in the late 1950’s we had to conduct an experiment and then write a paper on the results. Two kids on a team. One team made and brought brownies to class loaded with Ex-lax. They were simply horrible but some of the kids ate them anyway and, of course, they had the desired results. Both kids who brought them were expelled and not allowed to graduate that year. Parents took away their cars and grounded them for an entire year.

“Here, hold my brownie and watch this....”

Sounds like they took the time to sautee the
ganga in the butter first, really releases the
THC.

Stoners, like alcholics often seem to think
everyone should like to be stoned.

Guess this will teach them a lesson.

My husband and I went to an all night party out in the country once. I was warned that the brownies were laced with MJ. After wandering around greeting people I went back by the snacks and saw my husband scarfing down brownies. “Did you know those have MJ in them?” “No, I didn’t.” “How many have you eaten?” “This is my fourth.” “Oh, my gosh.” Fortunately we were able to spend the night on blankets enjoying the stars and a bonfire. The next day around noon he finally felt clear headed enough to drive the 15 miles home.

That isn’t what your posting history shows, you always do it, sometimes more than three posts per ping, and many of them are pretty well spaced.

They drugged them, not poisoned.

Pot has a whole host of other chemicals besides Δ9-THC in it; although the THC has a very high LD50, it is not the only thing in there. Contaminants can poison, too.

All the more reason for decriminalization and regulation.

Without free market controls, who knows what if any thing it may have been contaminated with?

1) It's been many years since this happened to me. I already could have lost my job as a result—but bad as that was—one of the party-givers was a 15-year-old girl who followed me home for the night!

2) A neighbor with the best of all possible Federal jobs—in National Security (where he could see his office from his front door)—just tested positive to cannibis , and lost that job!

Back in 1971 two girls I knew did this. They sprinkled some weed into the Christmas Day pasta sauce. At some point late in the meal they suddenly realized that the entire table (grandma included) were hysterical with laughing. They got kinda scared at that point but nothing worse happened.

My college age children suffer from seizures. One could very well "poison" either of them with a pot brownie. Who knows what other medications pot would have negative interactions with?

I would pull my students out of CO and WA

You’re right, but you might get flamed here for that. I know some folks that would behave much better if they just got a good high than they do when they are intoxicated. The pranksters, of course should be punished, but a misdeameaner charge that won’t follow them around all their life is sufficient.

I see the lowest end of the college IQ scale - the sex studies majors - are adapting entertainment’s talent challenged comedy via leftist activism. I bet the attention whore laugh riots don’t think slipping drugs into other people’s food is so funny today.
