ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Police in Maryland said a 17-year-old student was arrested after giving a teacher a brownie he later admitted was laced with marijuana.

Anne Arundel County police said a Broadneck High School teacher was taken to the nurse about 1 p.m. Monday when she began feeling ill and disoriented. The teacher told the School Resource Officer she had been given a brownie by a 17-year-old male student and she began suspecting it may have contained marijuana after she started feeling disoriented.

The teacher was treated and released from a local hospital.

Police said the teenager, an Arnold resident whose name was not released, told police he knew the brownie contained marijuana when he started eating it in class, and he panicked when the teacher asked for a piece.

The student, who police said had also given a piece to his 16-year-old girlfriend, admitted to police he submitted to the teacher's request without warning her it was spiked with pot.

School officials said students are now being instructed not to accept food from other students.

The 17-year-old was charged with controlled dangerous substance distribution, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. He was released into the custody of a guardian.
