2 University of Colorado students arrested for feeding class pot brownies

Posted: Updated:

Two University of Colorado students are facing felony charges after giving marijuana-laced brownies to their unsuspecting classmates and professor.

Police said 21-year-old Thomas Ricardo Cunningham and 19-year-old Mary Elizabeth Essa baked the brownies for class as part of a "bring food day."

On Friday morning, officers responded to a call about a professor who was complaining of dizziness and going in and out of consciousness. She was taken to the hospital, along with two other students who also became sick.

Investigators determined that the three hospitalized victims, and five other students, were suffering from the effects of marijuana.

Investigators say the looming legalization of marijuana has nothing to do with what happened inside the history class.

Cunningham and Essa are facing 4 felony counts and expulsion from the university.
