Plymouth middle schooler arrested after several students sickened by brownies

PLYMOUTH (WHDH) - A Plymouth Middle School student was arrested Friday after several of his classmates were sickened and hospitalized.

Police said the 13-year-old boy was arrested and charged with possessing over an ounce of marijuana and distributing marijuana. The arrest came after school officials said five students were taken to the hospital after “experiencing adverse effects” from eating brownies. Officials said the brownies, laced with marijuana, were eaten outside of the classroom and provided by a student.

The five students, ages 13 and 14, were taken to the hospital and have since been treated and released.

The incident is under investigation.
