Teen makes a hash of home economics
Saturday 26 May 2012
A teenager who laced chocolate brownies he made in a home economics lesson with cannabis last week has been expelled after the prank landed him and four other pupils in hospital.
The 14-year-old took the class B drug into All Saints College in West Denton, Newcastle, then added it to his cake mix. He shared the brownies with four classmates from Year 9, who have been suspended from school.
When the teacher realised what had happened, paramedics and the police were called, and the pupils were taken to hospital. All were found not to have any ill-effects and were discharged. The pupil responsible for making the cannabis cakes was arrested and bailed by Northumbria Police.
The father of one of the pupils who ate the cakes said his son did not believe the prankster when he told them he had laced them with cannabis. The parent told the Evening Chronicle he rushed to hospital after hearing what happened and the pupils were "a bit light-headed" but otherwise fine.
