A 17-year-old cheerleader from a Michigan high school was arrested after police say that she gave pot brownies to her classmates if they promised to vote for her for homecoming queen. School officials at Hartford High School became aware of the girl's plan after the state police received an anonymous tip through the app OK2Say.
The cheerleader baked 12 pot-laced brownies and distributed them at school. Some of the brownies were placed in goodie bags for members of the football team. Authorities were able to recover just three of the brownies and believe that students consumed the other nine before they could be confiscated.
"We have confirmed that brownies laced with marijuana were brought into the school and distributed to several students," Superintendent Andrew Hubbard said in a statement. "All individuals are being dealt with according to our district policies and student handbooks. We have notified the Hartford Police Department and are assisting them in their criminal investigation of the matter."
Investigators do not believe the girl cooked the brownies herself. They are trying to track down the individual who made them, saying that the person left the state not long after baking the brownies.
"You always think you've heard it all and seen it all, and there is always something new to surprise you," Hartford patrolman Michael Prince told WWMT.
