Second Arrest Over Pot-Laced Brownies at Bloomfield High School

Police believe eight students ate the brownies, resulting in one hospitalization.

Bloomfield police responded to a call from Metropolitan Learning Center to find a student in a “stupor state”, Patch reported last month. The student told police he had eaten brownies containing marijuana and was taken to the Connecticut Children Medical Center.

Police arrested a 16-year-old girl for selling the pot-laced treats, and wfsb reported Monday that a second teen had been arrested: Joshua Walker-Thomas, who just graduated from the Metropolitan Learning Center.

Walker-Thomas gave himself up to police and was arraigned at Hartford Superior Court.

The millions in taxes for these wonderful magnet schools are really paying off. Kids are so much smarter in these safe and wonderful facilities that promote such higher learning. I also can't wait till Mary Jane is legal and then the cops won't have to bother with these pesky arrests. You know, as they apply to kids, just like the cigarette, alcohol, and cell phone laws everyone ignores. Not to get off track but is anyone doing the math as to how much is costs society when the concerts come to town? The amount of ER trips is staggering for kids who get drunk and high. Figure $2000 on average per concert goer who goes to the ER to sleep. Ask the ER staff how much they like working when these concerts are held. The Comcast should be required to hire a medical team with 200 beds and basic monitoring to allow the folks to sleep it off right on site rather than the needless ER visits. They can triage the bad ones and transport them...

Get your facts straight. Marijuana is NOT SENDING kids to the ER at concerts- Ecstasy/Molly is. I agree that Marijuana should be legalized, regulated and taxed the same way as alcohol, but Marijuana doesn't belong on school grounds in any form legal or not. Just as Alcohol or cigarettes don't belong on a school campus.
