YUBA CITY , Calif., April 10 (UPI) -- A California teen was so determined to raise money for a prom dress that she enlisted the help of a minor to help her sell brownies that were laced with pot.

Unfortunately for Saira Munoz, she got caught and was taken out of River Valley High School in handcuffs.

In addition to being sentenced to four years probation for employing a minor to sell marijuana, the Yuba City teenager is now in danger of being deported back to Mexico.

“People make mistakes,” Carlos Robles, a friend of Munoz, told CBS Sacramento. “I was hurt, because she got arrested, and nobody wanted to see somebody we cared about go away. There’s people that deserve to be deported, and she just wasn’t one of them. There’s people that do way worse.”

Munoz came to the United States with temporary permission in 2000, and immigration officials are still reviewing her case after being alerted by the Sutter County Probation Department.

“It’s too much trouble to deport somebody for that,” student James Steerstold told Fox 40.

“She should not be deported for making weed brownies. I know lots of students who do that,” said student Dursimrim Kalar.
