Last Updated: 101 days ago
MUSKEGON, Mich. - A middle school student in Michigan was expelled after officials said she brought a marijuana cookie belonging to her mother to school.
Police investigated after officials at Orchard View Middle School found the cookie in December.
Orchard View Schools' Superintendent Pat Walstra says the student's mother had permission to use medical marijuana, The Muskegon Chronicle reported.
Walstra said the student was later expelled from the Muskegon-area school and "possession of an illegal substance is not permitted on or near school."
Michigan voters in 2008 approved the use of marijuana for medical reasons.
