(CNN) -- Police in Northern California have arrested an elementary schoolteacher after she allegedly brought marijuana-laced food to an after-hours employee potluck dinner.According to the story, Ms. Badger confessed to some of those affected that she had brought food with marijuana in it to the potluck. This does not sound like an accident. It used to be said that there is nothing as obnoxious as a reformed smoker, but my experience is that pot evangelists can be worse. Putting pot in food for a potluck sounds like, "See, if everyone has this experience, they will see how wonderful it is."
Teresa Gilmete Badger, a 47-year-old teacher at Matthew Turner Elementary School in Benicia, was arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of poisoning after a six-week-long investigation, said Lt. Frank Hartig of the Benicia Police Department.After the late-November get-together in the Bay Area town, several people reported feeling ill, a police statement said."One of the partygoers was rushed to the hospital with severe reactions; she was hospitalized," Hartig told CNN affiliate KPIX. "The very next morning, another partygoer was taken to the hospital, because she continued to feel like she was under the influence of something."
