COSTA MESA, Calif. (KTLA) — Three middle school students in Orange County were hospitalized after eating a pot brownie, authorities said.

Two seventh-graders went to the front office at TeWinkle Middle school around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday, complaining of stomach problems, according to school officials.

Two other students are being investigated in the incident, said Newport-Mesa Unified School District spokeswoman Laura Boss.

The student suspected of bringing the brownie to school was not among those transported to the hospital, Boss said.

The district sent out a notification to parents around 1:30 p.m., alerting them to the situation.

Just last month, seven students at Pomona Elementary School, also in Costa Mesa, were hospitalized after a student brought a brownie laced with marijuana to school.

A 12-year-old student was arrested in connection with that incident. Authorities say the two cases do not appear to be related.
