Students fall ill at Da Vinci High School

By April 22, 2011

Two of the three students who fell ill at Da Vinci High School Friday afternoon had shared a brownie laced with marijuana, according to Davis police.

The students, both 15-year-old girls, were taken to Sutter Davis Hospital with non-life-threatening illnesses, Lt. Paul Doroshov said.

Police have identified the alleged source of the brownie but did not release further information because that person is a minor.

“We’re investigating further,” Doroshov said, adding that there have been no arrests so far in connection with the illnesses.

Doroshov also said the girls, who had eaten the brownie on campus, were aware that it contained marijuana.

A third girl had become ill earlier in the day but suffers from ongoing medical issues that were unrelated to the drug-infused dessert, according to school district officials. She was transported to the hospital as well.

The Davis Fire Department reported receiving three 911 calls from the East Eighth Street campus at 12:45, 1:15 and 1:58 p.m. The multiple calls prompted police to respond to the school at about at 2:20 p.m.

All three students were treated at the hospital and released, said Pam Mari, spokeswoman for the Davis Joint Unified School District. The district also is investigating the incidents, she said.
