DELAND, Fla., Feb. 15 (UPI) — A Central Florida middle school student was hospitalized after eating brownies laced with marijuana that had been brought to the school, officials said.
Volusia County sheriff’s officials said a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old boy admitted bringing the brownies to Southwestern Middle School in DeLand, the Orlando Sentinel reported Thursday.
