On Friday, two University of Colorado Boulder students brought brownies to one of their classes as part of something called “Bring Food Friday.” They shared the snacks with their fellow classmates and their professor.

These brownies however, were baked with marijuana and led to three people being taken to the hospital, authorities report.

An investigation revealed that the three hospitalized victims — and five other classmates — were suffering from the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana,” University of Colorado Boulder Police said. “Two students — Thomas Ricardo Cunningham,  21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19 — baked THC-laced brownies for the class as part of a ‘bring food day.’ The professor and classmates were unaware that the brownies contained THC.”

Cunningham and Essa are facing felony charges, including assault in the second degree and inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means.

“It’s serious,” Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett told ABC News. “People have to be able to make decisions about what happens to them.”

The three hospitalized victims were released later that day.
