MUSKEGON TOWNHIP, Mich.–A middle school student at Orchard View Middle School in Muskegon County was sent home in December after bringing a marijuana cookie to school, according to Superintendent Patricia Walstra. The female student was expelled for 180 days.

This is the second incident in several months in West Michigan involving marijuana-laced treat at school.

In January, two students at Three Rivers High School were caught with pot candy. Police believe they bought it from another student.
