RICHMOND -- Two students at a Richmond school were hospitalized after they ate brownies laced with marijuana, Richmond police said Thursday.

The incident occurred at De Anza High School after students purchased the brownies from a 17-year-old girl. Two of the students lost consciousness after eating the brownies, and another three felt nauseous and vomited, according to Lt. Andre Hill.

The student who sold the brownies has been arrested on the suspicion of drug sales, Hill said. Since being taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon, the two teens' condition has been upgraded.

The district will take "appropriate action," which could include expelling the student, once the police investigation is complete, said Marcus Walton, a district spokesman.
