Police: Students given pot brownies for homecoming votes




HARTFORD, MI — According to police in southwestern Michigan, an investigation is underway into a 17-year-old cheerleader who is being accused of giving weed-laced brownies to students at her high school in an attempt to be voted homecoming queen.

According to WXMI, authorities recovered three brownies from students at Hartford High School. The brownies have been sent to the state crime lab for testing. There are reportedly nine brownies unaccounted for, according to the report.

Police say they learned about the scheme when a tip was received on September 26. “Some of the brownies were given out in goodie bags for the football team, and the leftovers were used for homecoming queen votes,” the report said.

However, it’s unknown if the pot brownie scheme helped the cheerleader’s campaign for homecoming queen.

The incident is under investigation and the suspected cheerleader is set to be interviewed by authorities.
