An unidentified 16-year-old boy faces up to 8 years of prison for allegedly making marijuana brownies and bringing them to Valparaiso High School in Valparaiso, Indiana on Dec. 21.

Police and school officials received an anonymous tip last Friday that the teen had brought the marijuana brownies to school, reports the Post-Tribune.

Authorities found a baking pan, a butter knife and a plastic container, which smelled strongly of marijuana in the student’s locker.

When confronted, the teen admitted to giving away and selling the brownies (for $40 each), which were made with half an ounce of marijuana. The student said he made the brownies with his parents the morning before school.
