RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two students have been released from a hospital after becoming ill from eating marijuana-laced brownies sold at their San Francisco Bay Area high school.

Richmond police Capt. Mark Gagan (GAY'-gen) said Friday the students at De Anza High School were released late Thursday night. Three other students were treated at the school for nausea and vomiting.

Authorities say the five students became ill Thursday after a 17-year-old girl allegedly sold the brownies for $3 apiece or two for $5.

Gagan says investigators intend to seek charges against the girl, who was arrested on suspicion of distribution and sales of drugs on a school campus and child endangerment. The person is being held at juvenile hall.

The name of the teen was not released because of her age.
