Munford High student suspended over marijuana brownies

MUNFORD, Ala. (AP) -- A senior at Munford High School has been suspended after allegedly giving 12 students marijuana-laced brownies that caused nausea, headaches and dizziness.

"The incident occurred just after buses unloaded Wednesday morning," according to a press release from the Talladega County School System.

The teen was charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and assault. He was transported to Coosa Valley Youth Detention Center in Anniston.

A juvenile court hearing for the suspect Friday fell on his 18th birthday.

Authorities said he was seen bringing brownies into the facility and allegedly distributed them to students ranging in age from 14 to 19.

After several students were examined by the school nurse, principal Judson Warlick contacted their parents, who were advised to check their children out of school and seek medical attention. Students eventually told investigators where they got the brownies. School officials questioned the student, who initially indicated to the principal that he placed marijuana in them.

Warlick recovered about two uneaten brownies in a trash can and turned them over to the sheriff's department for testing and use as evidence. Talladega County Sheriff's Investigator Tony Haynes said the brownies gave off a strong odor of marijuana.


Small world. I was once a student at Ophelia Hill Elementary School in Munford and all three of my siblings attended Munford High School for brief periods of time.

Tony Haynes?? I can't help but think this is the same Tony Haynes I grew up with. Funny to think that he of all people might help in sending someone to jail for pot!!
