Marijuana cookies at West Sacramento school sickens one student; 13-year-old arrested

A 13-year-old student was arrested after he allegedly brought marijuana cookies to a West Sacramento school.

West Sacramento police said that the student at Southport Elementary, a K-8 school, on Tuesday brought about six marijuana cookies to campus on Tuesday. He then sold two of the cookies to another student who gave them to two other students, according to police Lt. Tod Sockman.

The two who received the cookies for free ate them and one of them got sick, police said.

The male student who allegedly brought the cookies to school was arrested by police for suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale.

The boy who bought the cookies was arrested for possession of marijuana. All the students involved are 13-year-old boys who were eventually released to their parents.

It is not known where the first boy got the cookies, police said.
