According to WUSA-TV, the 17-year-old male student at Broadneck High School in Anne Arundel County "got scared and panicked when the teacher asked for a piece of the brownie, so he didn't mention it contained marijuana," police said.
He handed over a piece of the treat, after which point the teacher started acting disoriented. She was treated at a hospital and released.
"One of our teachers was given a brownie by a student and, soon thereafter, began to become disoriented," Broadneck principal David Smith said in an email to parents. "She was seen by the school nurse and told the nurse about eating the brownie. The nurse immediately summoned me and I sent an administrator to get the student so he could be questioned. The student admitted to giving the teacher the brownie and knowing it contained marijuana."
School officials did not immediately comment further to TheBlaze.
According to the Associated Press, the student is facing juvenile counts of administering a dangerous substance, assault and reckless endangerment.
