Three Elk Grove Unified high school students in the last two days have reported becoming sick after eating marijuana-laced brownies.
About 2 p.m. today, two ninth-grade students from Monterey Trail High School in Elk Grove went to the school office and told staff they were feeling ill, said Elizabeth Graswich, spokeswoman for the Elk Grove Unified School District. The boys said another student gave them marijuana-laced brownies, she said.
The boys were taken to an area hospital after they began to vomit, Graswich said. She said they are still at the hospital being evaluated.
On Wednesday, a junior went to the Florin High School office and told staff members she became sick after eating a brownie that contained marijuana.
The girl was checked out by emergency personnel and sent home with an adult.
"We do see kids come to school from time to time under the influence or find them at school under the influence," Graswich said. "But two incidents in two days is unusual."
She said the incidents were not related.
The school district police department is investigating both cases in conjunction with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.
