'Weed brownie' hospitalizes a student in Bloomfield

Posted: Updated:

A "weed brownie" landed one Bloomfield student in the hospital and several others in trouble.

Police said they were called to the Metropolitan Learning Center on Blue Hills Avenue around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. They said a 15-year-old student was hyperventilating and in a "stupor state."

The student told them that he had bought the brownie from an 18-year-old student. He was eventually transported to the Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford for evaluation.

"This morning, a high school student brought brownies that were reported to have been laced with marijuana to our campus," wrote school officials in a letter to parents. "We are working closely with law enforcement to investigate and determining which students may have been knowingly or unknowingly involved."

Police said they suspected that up to eight students had consumed the brownies and also knew what they were. School officials said they were notifying the parents of those students.

The 18-year-old student was identified by police. A 16-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy were also identified as accomplices. All of them were students at the Metropolitan Learning Center.

Police said they sold the tainted brownies to eight students at the Metropolitan Learning Center.

Bloomfield police said no arrests have been made yet, but they're expected to happen soon.

"Any students found to be a party to this incident will be issued the maximum possible penalty, including possible expulsion and/or arrest," the letter read.

The school failed to tell Eyewitness News what type of punishment the kids involved would be facing. 

"Hopefully this doesn't happen again," said Metropolitan Learning Center parent Al Parker.
