Police say Seneca Valley students sold marijuana-laced brownies
Jackson Township police are reviewing possible charges against six Seneca Valley High School students accused of making, selling or eating marijuana-laced brownies.
Police Chief Terry Seilhamer said the school district notified police on Thursday after a mother alerted officials. Her son, a junior, texted her to tell her he wasn't feeling well because he ate a marijuana brownie, Seilhamer said.
Police learned that a senior, 17, bought $140 worth of marijuana and baked it into brownies with his friend, also a senior, 18, Seilhamer said. They brought the brownies to school and, along with another student, began selling them for $15 each.
Possible charges include the manufacture, delivery and possession of illegal drugs, and conspiracy, Seilhamer said. Investigators plan to confer with the Butler County District Attorney's Office before filing charges, he said.
Linda Andreassi, a district spokeswoman, said the students will face consequences.
