A teacher in Kersey was treated for illness earlier this week after she apparently ate a marijuana-laced brownie given to her by a student. [via greeleytribute]
The student, 18-year-old senior Christopher Archer, is now out of jail on $50,000 bond. He was charged with distribution of marijuana, after Kersey police investigated the incident.
Police asked to withhold the name of the teacher who was a victim in the incident, although the student — Archer — said the teacher had earlier given him $50 to buy some prescription pain killers. Court records state Archer told police he couldn’t get the drug, so he made the marijuana brownies.
But, an affidavit also states that Archer said he tried to give them to the teacher and she refused.
About 11 a.m. Monday, police and paramedics were called to the Platte Valley High School where the teacher became “very sick” after eating the brownie. She was taken to North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, where she was later released after treatment.
Kersey police investigated the case and found she had eaten a “large amount of marijuana” baked into a brownie. Two other students said they’d taken brownies from Archer that day, but one said his tasted funny and he spit it out, and the other student said he ate his without any effect.
The case has been turned over to the Weld District Attorney’s Office to determine if charges will be brought against the teacher. They have not been able to corroborate Archer’s statement that the teacher asked him to buy drugs.
