Hayward police arrested a 17-year-old boy Wednesday after four Tennyson High School students, including the boy, were hospitalized after ingesting marijuana-laced brownies earlier that day. At about 11 a.m. Wednesday, officials at the school, located at 27035 Whitman St., notified the school resource officer that a student was in possession of a brownie believed to contain marijuana. A teacher saw a student passing money to another student in class in exchange for an object, according to police. Police determined that the object was a pot brownie, and learned that the 17-year-old boy had brought the brownies to school, sold them to at least two students and gave one to another student. All four students became ill with symptoms consistent with being under the influence of marijuana, police said. Two said they had never used marijuana before. One of the students passed out in a school parking lot and required emergency aid. Three of the students were taken to a hospital by ambulance, while the fourth was taken by a parent, police said. All four students are expected to recover. The student believed to have sold the brownies was arrested on suspicion of selling and furnishing marijuana. About one and a half brownies were recovered from the students, and small bags of marijuana were found in the classroom where the teacher reported the incident, police said.
