Criminal charges aimed at Texas student for marijuana cookies

Authorities have charged a 13-year-old female student from McMath Middle School in Denton with the manufacture or delivery of under 400 grams of a penalty group 2 substance. Her arrest resulted after two other students reported feeling ill after eating small amounts of the marijuana cookies that she allegedly brought to school.

The two eighth graders informed school staff about their upset stomachs and identified the student who let them try bites of the cookies. School administrators said that they smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the her locker and asked the police officer on duty at the school to open it. The police officer said that chocolate chip cookies containing Tetrahydrocannabinol were inside.

Questioning of the three students involved led to the suspect admitting that she brought the cookies to school. The source of the THC-laced cookies has not been determined. Police took the girl into custody. The school nurse monitored the other two students until they felt better and could go back to class.

Any juvenile or adult charged with a crime has the right to legal representation. An attorney could advise a juvenile and the parents about the possible consequences of marijuana charges or other drug offenses. An attorney could try to create a defense strategy to push back against an aggressive prosecutor and protect the person's rights. Challenges to a search or questioning the person's association with the evidence might cast doubt on the charges and lead to a reduction or dismissal of charges. The efforts of an attorney might help a person avoid severe penalties.
