HARTFORD, Michigan — Her electoral lead may go up in smoke.
School officials in Michigan are investigating a purported pot brownie giveaway in which a cheerleader was handing out edible marijuana in exchange for votes for homecoming queen.
“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-TV.
Officials with the school district alerted parents earlier this week that pot brownies had been distributed to students in school. They said they began an investigation following a tip that was received by state police.
The name of the cheerleader was not disclosed publicly, but school Superintendent Andrew Hubbard said: “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 said the suspected chef has moved out of state since the incident, and that there are no reports of anyone becoming ill from the brownies. However, they have sent some of the brownies to the Michigan State Police crime lab for testing.
