2 Charged With Felonies For Pot-Laced Brownies

CBS Denver

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4/AP) — Two University of Colorado students have been charged with felonies for allegedly giving pot-laced brownies to classmates and a professor without their knowledge.

Prosecutors Thursday charged 19-year-old Mary Elizabeth Essa with 18 felony counts that include second-degree assault.

Prosecutors had earlier charged 21-year-old Thomas Ricardo Cunningham with similar counts. The incident last week at the school sickened seven students and professor.

Cunningham and Essa are accused of taking the brownies to class for “bring food” day.

They are scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 25, 2013.

In an unrelated incident, a 14-year-old girl was sent to a hospital Wednesday after eating a marijuana brownie at a high school. The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that a 14-year-old boy was arrested and released to his parents.

Police told the Gazette the girl knew what was in the brownie before she ate it.
