BAKE SALE COMES WITH HIGH COST

Tis that time of the year....proms, leaving ceremonies, graduations.

My sister-in-law was in town looking for that perfect shade of blue to ensure my nephew's shirt  matches his date in a few weeks. Fortunately, he has his mom to do his shopping.

Poor old Saira Munoz was not as fortunate. In order to get the money she needed to buy that perfect dress she resorted to her culinary talents and had a bake sale of sorts.

She baked pot brownies, then hired another student to sell them at her high school!

It was a lucrative and innovative idea.  The prom dress was about to become a reality when the brownies made a student sick drawing attention to the fundraising plan.

She was sentenced to nine days in jail and four years' probation for employing a minor to sell marijuana. She may also be deported back to Mexico.

So much for the American Dream!
