Several children and adults got sick after the person who is known as “the cookie man” gave the marijuana chocolate chip cookies at church, according to police in Indiana.
Prosecutors cut a deal with the man and agreed to drop the case if the cookie man remains out of trouble for two years.
Ellettsville police said that they have arrested 75-year-old Brian N. Jones after being accused of passing around the marijuana cookies at the St. John the Apostle Church.
Jones has been charged with criminal recklessness and possession of hash oil.
According to the criminal complaint, the Ellettsville Police Department responded to numerous complaints from attendees of St. John’s Catholic Church after morning Mass, ranging from nausea, increased blood pressure, anxiety, lethargy, and paranoia.
The patrons had each claimed to have been given a chocolate chip cookie by a fellow churchgoer after the service.
A cookie that a patron claimed was given to them after the Mass was sent to the Indiana State Police Laboratory for analysis.
The Indiana State Police Laboratory found that the cookie tested positive for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a controlled substance.
A total of six people were rushed to the Bloomington hospital for treatment.
The ages of the six victims range from 12 to 70.
One victim told investigators that she felt like she was having a stroke.
