A South Dakota man faces a felony drug charge after his mother unknowingly served marijuana brownies to a group of seniors at a local community center, according to authorities.

The 46-year-old is charged with possession of a drug or controlled substance, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $ 10,000 fine on conviction.

A report from Bon Homme County Deputy Sheriff Joel Neuman says dispatchers received multiple calls about possible poisonings on January 4. All calls involved seniors who had previously been to a Tabor Community Center card game.

An investigation into the incident led Neuman to believe that all the patients were under the influence of THC, the compound in cannabis that produces the high, and that the THC came from a batch of brownies brought by a woman to the community center. the Yankton Press. and Dakotan reported.

Two older people who ate the brownies identified the woman who brought them. The woman told Sheriff Mark Maggs that her son had baked the brownies she brought to the card game, according to the report. The woman gave Maggs the rest of the brownies at her house.

Authorities said the son admitted to bringing some THC butter from a recent visit to Colorado and using it to make the brownies.

He was arrested and released on an unsecured bond of $ 3,000. An initial court appearance is scheduled for January 25. Drug charge filed after seniors consumed marijuana brownies.
