ALBANY -- An Albany High School student was sickened, apparently from eating a marijuana brownie, resulting in the paramedics being called to the school last week.
The incident, which happened on June 4, resulted in the female student leaving campus with a parent. A male student was cited for possession of marijuana brownies, according to Albany Police Lt. John Geissberger.
"We went up there for a call," Geissberger said. "It's all juveniles that were involved. It sounded like one female had possibly (been) sickened from eating one. And another student was found in possession of pot brownies and was cited."
Albany High School Principal Ted Barone did not return a call asking for comment. He told an online news site that the school does have "a continuing concern with incidents of students selling pot brownies on campus."
Geissberger said the police are called occasionally for marijuana-related incidents but that they aren't a "regular event."
