A laboratory test has confirmed that a batch of brownies given to an Alabama prosecutor’s staff contained marijuana.

Two people who work for Baldwin County District Attorney Hallie Dixon got sick this month after eating brownies at the office. Dixon says a temporary court reporter gave her staff the treats.

WKRG-TV reports Dixon now says a lab test found THC, an intoxicating chemical found in marijuana, in the brownies.

Dixon says she doesn’t know if anyone can be charged for the pot brownies. She’s asked a district attorney from another county to look at the case. The Alabama Bureau of Investigation has not released the name of the court reporter.
