(Newser) – That marijuana-laced brownies were brought to a Michigan high school and distributed has been confirmed, but Fox17 has a tidbit that makes the story something extra. The person who tipped off police using the OK2Say app alleged the brownies were brought in by a cheerleader who doled out some to football players and used others in a bid to secure homecoming votes. MLive reports police last Wednesday forwarded the tip to Hartford High School administrators, who looked into the claim and found it to have merit. The school on Tuesday said "all individuals are being dealt with according to our district policies and student handbooks."

Fox17 reports the 17-year-old female allegedly brought a dozen brownies to school and only three have been recovered. They're being tested by the state police crime lab. The station points out the obvious: Students possibly ate the other nine. A rep for the Hartford Police Department notes that the fact the school is in a drug-free zone could theoretically mean felony charges could be issued. (This dad ate his kid's pot brownies, with unfortunate results.)
