Two Yucca Valley Students Rushed to Hospital After Consuming a Marijuana Brownie

YUCCA VALLEY – Two La Contenta Middle School students were transported to the hospital after consuming marijuana brownies authorities said.

On Wednesday morning at around 9:21 a.m. Morongo Station deputies responded to the Yucca Valley school for the report of a student possibly suffering from a drug overdose. Deputies learned that the boy brought a marijuana brownie to school and shared it with a female student. The school staff noticed that the students were acting as though they were under the influence of drugs. The school principal was notified and called paramedics, who transported both students to the hospital for evaluation and they were subsequently discharged.

Authorities learned that the male student had access to 36-year-old Timothy Baker’s marijuana and marijuana brownings.  Baker was located at the home where around 2 pounds of marijuana and several marijuana brownies were found.
