A Crescent City man was arrested Monday on suspicion of selling marijuana-laced brownies to teenagers, including two who were taken to the hospital.

The mother of a 16-year-old girl contacted the Sheriff's Office after her daughter spent almost a day in the hospital as a result of eating the brownies, said sheriff's Commander Bill Steven. Another girl was treated in the emergency room for the same reason, Steven said.

The two girls ate the marijuana brownies Saturday with two teenage boys, Steven said, adding the boys bought the brownies from a neighbor who had a medical marijuana card.

Authorities arrested 21-year-old Casey Mealue on suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, willful cruelty to a child, inducing a minor to use marijuana and possessing marijuana for sale.
