Dacula students in trouble over pot brownies

DACULA -- Officials recently disciplined 10 students at Dacula High School after one of them allegedly brought marijuana brownies to school and handed them out.

According to Jorge Quintana, a spokesman with Gwinnett County Public Schools, an 11th-grade student brought the brownies to school on Feb. 20, "showed them to a second student, and both distributed them to other students."

Quintana said a total of 10 students were disciplined because the students received the brownies "knowing marijuana was in them. The school received information that the brownies had marijuana in them. .. and they started an investigation."

The students who received the brownies were at fault, Quintana said, because they "were told such and such person has brownies with marijuana, and they knowingly received them."
