A South Dakota man was arrested after his mother unknowingly served his marijuana brownies at a senior center, authorities said.
Michael James Koranda, 46, of Tabor, was arrested Jan. 5, a day after the Bon Homme County Sheriff’s Office began investigating reports of “possible poisonings” at the Tabor Community Center, according to a probable cause affidavit written by a sheriff's deputy.
He faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance and declined to comment Thursday afternoon.
“An investigation into the incident led me to believe that the patients were all under the influence of THC from a batch of brownies that were brought to the Community Center” by the suspect’s mother, the affidavit said.
Koranda’s mother told Sheriff Mark Maggs that “her son Michael had baked a pan of brownies and she took them to the Community Center card game,” the affidavit said.
Koranda’s mother handed over the rest of the brownies, the affidavit said.
The deputy who wrote the affidavit said he spoke to two people who ate the brownies at the senior center, the affidavit said.
They said they learned Koranda had been in Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal, over the weekend and returned with marijuana products, the affidavit said.
“Michael admitted to bringing 1 pound of THC butter to make the pan of brownies and then went to bed, and his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game where several people ate them,” according to the affidavit. “Michael said the remaining half pound of butter was still at his house.”
Koranda turned over the remaining THC butter to investigators, the affidavit said.
Court records in Koranda’s case show he was released on $3,000 bond, and a representative with the county’s clerk’s office said Koranda had not retained an attorney.
NBC affiliate KTIV in Sioux City, Iowa, reported Koranda is a teacher with the Bon Homme School District. No one with the district could be reached for comment Thursday afternoon.
What appears to be Koranda's Linkedin page describes him as a "K-12 Vocal Music Educator" at the district.
Attempts to speak to someone with the Tabor Community Center were unsuccessful Thursday.
updated: the sheriff reports that the evidence has disappeared and the internal investigation is ongoing.
Someone probably ate the evidence!
Did they save us some?
I use cannabis butter to make my famous "Crazy Cookies".
They're oatmeal cookies with Craisins instead of raisins.
They never last long because munchies.
In other news, tens of thousands of nursing home residents across the state of South Dakota descended upon the Capitol in Pierre, SD in protest, demanding that the possession and consumption of pot be made legal immediately.
And that it be covered under Medicare part D.
Served in the cafeteria...
Probably the best card game they had in a while.
My understanding is that some of the seniors attended a Pow Wow and were adopted as Wannabe's by the local natives.
Lucky. I want to be invited.
One of the residents of the nursing home, Ivana Hafsechs, said, "The brownies tasted kinda funny butt the orgy after the card game was fanfuckingtastic!"
Another resident, Dixon Kuntz, said, "That was the best fucking card game ever!"
Nothing beats when the folds of wrinkles fit together perfectly.
Too fanfuckingtastically funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My cousin, Luther Walks the Horse is a spiritual advisor to the center had this to say while puffing on his medicine pipe.
Dem white folks be doing a lot of tipi crawling and snagging after dem brownies. We really have to adopt them into the tribe.
How did anyone discover there was a problem? Were all the people who ate them happy and giggling?
all the trumpsters had bad trips...
Trump is a bad trip.
