ARNOLD, MD - Need to score some points with your teacher? Try an apple, not a pot-brownie. That's a lesson learned the hard way by a half-baked high school student in Arnold, Maryland, north of Annapolis.

Police say a teacher at Broadneck High School got really sick after a 17-year-old student gave her a piece of his pot brownie. Apparently, he wasn't trying to give her part of his munchies, but when the teacher saw the kid splitting the brownie with his girlfriend she asked for a piece.

Afraid of getting in trouble, the student failed to tell the teacher about the marijuana-laced sweet treat, and gave her a portion.

A bit later the teacher started feeling the effects of the pot and began getting sick. An ambulance was called for the teacher, and the cops were called on the student.

He was arrested and charged with administering a controlled substance,  distribution, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Then he was released to a parent.
