VANCOUVER — Teens selling marijuana-infused baked goods at two North Vancouver high schools managed to make two students sick from goodies they picked up at a 420-related event last week.

One teen was sent to the hospital and another went home sick after eating the pot-laced food. Cpl. Richard De Jong said police are still investigating to determine if charges should be laid.

He said the buyers were aware the treats were supposed to contain marijuana.

“I don’t know how many actually consumed it, but two got sick enough to go home or go to the hospital,” De Jong said.

“It could be anything in there, you cannot trust your drug dealer to know exactly what’s in the product you buy.”

He said police seized several pot brownies and Rice Krispies squares — which were labeled as containing a mixture of Rice Krispies, marshmallow, vanilla and “canna butter.”

De Jong said it’s unclear whether the teens who sold the tainted treats bought them from a rally staged outside the Vancouver Art Gallery on April 20, or at some other gathering that day.

The students who got sick had symptoms included nausea, headaches and dizziness, but have fully recovered.
