A student from Great Mills High School has been arrested and charged for selling pot brownies on school property.

On Wednesday, at Great Mills High School, a school employee noticed that a student was ill and possibly suffering from an overdose, due to eating a brownie that contained THC/CBG. Corporal Kristi Nelson was notified and a joint investigation between the St. Mary’s County Public Schools and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office was initiated.

They found out that a 15-year-old female student made the marijuana brownies and proceeded to sell them at school. Numerous students consumed the brownies, which explains how they got sick. Two students were ultimately transported to a local hospital for treatment and the student who made and sold the brownies was charged with CDS: Distribution School Property; CDS: Distribution of Marijuana; CDS: Possession of Marijuana; Reckless Endangerment; and Disruption of School Activities.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division will be continuing this investigation.
