Unlucky “Pot” Luck Dinner

Pot Luck doesn't mean "made with pot", but this 1st grade teacher allegedly brought the best snacks to the employee pot luck.

Pot Luck doesn’t mean “made with pot”, but this 1st grade teacher allegedly brought the best snacks to the employee pot luck.

What to bring.. what to bring…what to bring? When invited to an after-work pot luck dinner party, you’re supposed to bring “something you made”, not “something you made from pot”. A first grade teacher in Benicia, California has been arrested for allegedly poisoning her work mates with marijuana-laced food at a November pot luck.

According to the news, the 18 year veteran public school teacher Teresa Gilmete Badger has been charged with 3 counts of poisoning. Some people got sick and went to the hospital, including a teen who ate leftovers. Tests confirmed THC (tetra-hydrocannabinol) was present in the blood of one person stricken, but no formal connection has been made between the illnesses and marijuana in the alleged poisoner’s contribution to the pot luck dinner.

So why the arrests? Various reports suggest Badger admitted to co-workers she knew of pot in the dish, but we don’t have any report of an admission to authorities. In fact, we couldn’t find mention of the dish itself… was it brownies, we wonder?

Ms. Badger has reportedly been placed on administrative leave.
