Why the **** would that be a felony. They didn't hurt anybody. Getting someone high without their consent is ****ed up but its just weed. We don't need to act like a bunch of children and lock people up in a cage over it.

3 People would beg to disagree that they did not hurt anybody.
It most definitely deserves legal punishment.

What if one of the unwitting students had driven? What if one of them had a sensitive stomach condition? What if one of them had a heart condition (weed makes your heart beat like crazy). What if they're were allergic? What if one of the students was a mentally disabled kid and, after eating the brownie, went bonkers and destroyed some shit or something?

Weed is lovely, but in this case, it's no different than feeding people poisoned brownies.

Some of the responses in this thread make me question if smoking weed really does turn people into complete ****ing morons.

I smoke it occasionally, but I would kick my own ass if I ever caught myself saying some of the idiotic things I've read in this thread.

To everybody saying that this doesn't really constitute hurting them, I think you are vastly underestimating the effects that cannabis can have, especially on the unsuspecting and in such a large dose as an edible tends to contain. I smoke regularly and a brownie is still enough to have me tripping balls most of the day, and while I'm familiar enough with being high to avoid the unpleasant freakouts and paranoia that can occur on larger doses, I have no doubt that having such a high level of THC suddenly thrust upon you, especially if you're not a frequent smoker (and double especially here in Boulder, where our weed is so goddamn good), would cause somebody to panic. So yeah, it was a dick move, and although I definitely don't think these kids should get jail time for a mostly innocuous (as far as things that are considered felonies go) prank, to say that it was harmless is just stupid.

That being said, I think this would be a hilarious prank to play on your friends, provided you were all at least somewhat familiar with being high, because a bad trip is no fun for anybody.

Not all brownies have the same potency. I've had some really weak ones. Actually I don't remember ever eating one that had me "tripping." The only time I trip from weed is when I combine it with other drugs.

Didn't happen to him.

Couldn't have happened to the students and prof.

Its a setup.

They demonstrably did harm someone. I'm generally against Prison Sentences unless absolutely necessary, but there certainly should be some punishment; a hefty fine or community service would suffice.

Wow. I feel bad for the people who ate those, because edibles can be awfully potent. Especially if you have a low tolerance. And for the people who don't smoke in that class, they were probably genuinely scared and had every right to be.

Darwin would disagree...if they are stupid enough to pull this "prank" they are stupid enough to do worse things in my opinion. This is just plain asenine. It's not a matter of weed or illegality of the drug, its a matter that they essentially poisoned their whole class. If you are as educated or experienced as you seem, you should know that some people don't react well to weed. Like the person who had panic attacks.
And as someone else said, what if they had driven or had a drug test for an important job or internship or something. They didn't tell them even after that they did it, so who knows what lasting effect could have done for the rest of the high that they were on.

EDIT: And yeah, like I said, legal action should be taken. I'm not saying lock them up, but they need to realize what asshats they were to make such a stupid decision.

Who cares. They fed a drug to an unknowing group. Penicillin is a totally legal drug, and most people take it without any side effects. That doesn't mean I can mash it up in some brownies and feed it to people without them knowing. What if it was only a little bit? Who cares. I'm sure somebody would have gotten hurt or killed. What about alcohol? Nobody gets hurt from a little booze, right? So it's cool if I mix some in the water cooler?

It doesn't matter that it was "just weed." They were idiots who slipped drugs to people. You can't let that slide.
