A Puyallup man faces criminal charges for allegedly giving marijuana extract to his teen daughter, who in turn baked it into treats she gave to unknowing classmates, making some sick.
Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist charged Michael Miller, 45, Wednesday, with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance to a person under the age of 18, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, and reckless endangerment.
Miller allegedly extracted hash oil from marijuana he was growing in his South Hill home, giving some to his 16-year-old daughter.
The teen reportedly gave brownies and lemon bars laced with THC coconut oil to three students at Emerald Ridge High School, Lindquist said. Two of the students said they did not know the baked goods contained THC.
The students got sick soon after eating them and went to the nurses office, where they told the nurse about the treats. The teen subsequently admitted to baking the treats using THC oil that her father gave to her.
She told deputies her father knew she was going to make THC brownies to give to students at school.
She is charged with three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and was being held at Remann Hall until suitable housing could be found for her. Miller was arraigned Wednesday today in Tacoma, and he is being held in lieu of $35,000 bail.
Police serving a search warrant at the Miller home found hash oil extraction equipment in the garage. They also discovered a large marijuana grow operation in the house, including 125 marijuana plants.
Miller told detectives he allows his daughter to smoke marijuana with him, and admitted he knew his daughter was using the hash oil to bake treats.
