Teen given probation for baking marijuana-laced cookies

WILMINGTON (AP) -- A Wilmington high school student is on court-ordered probation after admitting she baked marijuana into cookies that were given to a teacher. The Star-News reported Friday that 17-year-old Elizabeth Ann Coleman was given two years supervised probation and ordered to perform 96 hours of community service. She also must write an apology letter to the Spanish teacher. Assistant District Attorney Tom Old said Coleman admitted sharing the cookies with friends, but Old said it was another teenager at Laney High School that gave the cookies to the teacher. An arrest warrant said the teacher ate the cookies and became "mentally incapacitated." Coleman had been charged with two felony counts of contaminating food with a controlled substance. Old said if Coleman makes it through her probation, the case will be dismissed. --- Information from: The Star-News, (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
