Framingham teen accused of selling marijuana brownies

A 16-year-old girl who allegedly sold brownies laced with marijuana at Framingham High School was arrested Monday morning after the trippy treats made two students sick, said Framingham police.

Two students went to the school nurse’s office around 9 a.m. complaining that they were not feeling well.

When she asked why, they told her that they had eaten marijuana brownies they got from a senior at the school, said police Lieutenant Ron Brandolini.

When police questioned the girl — whose name could not be released because she is a juvenile — she admitted to selling the brownies to the two students, Brandolini said.

Police also found eight more of the brownies in her purse, he said, and the girl told police she found the recipe for the brownies online.

“This is certainly a rare occurrence at the high school,” Brandolini said. “You don’t hear stories like this very often.”

The girl was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and for having drugs on a school campus.

Brandolini could not give any other details, citing an ongoing investigation.

Principal Michael Welch and superintendent Stacy Scott could not be reached for comment.

However, Welch told the MetroWest Daily News that the girl has been suspended and will be subject to a disciplinary hearing.

The school also suspended three students who allegedly bought and ate the brownies, Welch said.

Two of the students were taken to the hospital, and the third was treated at the school, Welch told the newspaper. He said all three will be fine.

The sale was conducted through social media, and two of the students did not know the seller’s name, Welch reportedly said.
