Earlsboro, OK (KFOR) – A cafeteria worker at Earlsboro Elementary School is facing charges, after he allegedly served marijuana-baked “happy cookies” to two teachers.
“What if a kid gets that,” said Lt. Travis Sullivan, of the Earlsboro Police Department. “It’s a safe thing.”
“You never know. You have to take every situation very seriously,” said Superintendent Mark Malloy.
During lunchtime Thursday, a new batch of marijuana cookies was delivered to Earlsboro Elementary School teachers. Police said cafeteria worker Sarah Daily used her own THC butter in the mixture. The 40-year-old told investigators she hoped to ease the teachers’ alleged stomach aches.
“I think she was trying to help them,” Sullivan said. “In return, one of them got sick and had to go home all day, and the second found out she got sick.”
After hearing the sweet cannabis remedy made the first teacher ill, the second teacher went to the principal, who then went to the district officials.
New problem, yes. Malloy said.
Police brought in District 23’s Drug Enforcement Squad to assist with the investigation.
The 40-year-old told investigators that teachers were supposed to keep cookies for them to eat at home.
She brought them to school, hoping they would take her home and eat her there. Sullivan said.
After questioning, Dailey was booked into the Pottawatomie County Detention Center, while the cookies were sent to OSBI.
“I understand her intentions were good, but they were misplaced,” Sullivan said. “Don’t take anything edible with marijuana inside on school property. Because you will pay for it in the end.”
Dailey is faced with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute the fee.
