Four bucks for a brownie? Unless you're getting a mocha cappacrappachino with soy and no foam, chances are there might be something suspicious going on.

Five students from Ball High in Galveston found that out when they got sick after buying pot-laced brownies from another student yesterday.

Three of the students went to the nurse's office, with at least one complaining of a panic attack and a desire to actually listen to an entire Phish song.

Call us cynical, but we're thinking the students' complaints are more along the lines of getting bad pot than they are "My word, there seems to be marijuana in these brownies someone sold me for four bucks." But we could be wrong, and we make no accusations.

The student who sold the dessert was arrested and charged with four counts of "assault causing bodily injury."

Assault by brownie? There's a charge we've never heard of.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
