U of Iowa Student Busted for Marijuana-Laced Brownies
A University of Iowa student faces a drug charge after he allegedly received a mail package of brownies made with marijuana. Authorities say staff at one of the school's residence halls intercepted a package in early April intended for 19-year-old Christian Hernandez. A criminal complaint says the package smelled of marijuana. The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the package was turned over to the Johnson County Drug Task Force. Authorities say Hernandez told them he received a previous package with marijuana brownies and distributed them to friends. Hernandez was charged with a felony controlled substance violation with the intent to distribute.
