STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - A Stevens Point man has pleaded not guilty to serving up marijuana-laced cookies to his former co-workers.
21-year-old Darren Blair is charged in Portage County with reckless endangerment, placing foreign objects in edibles, and delivering the main ingredient in marijuana.
Prosecutors said Blair brought the cookies to the Charcoal Grill in Plover on March 22nd, and a female co-worker ate two of them before getting sick. She reportedly told officers that Blair asked everyone if they wanted "pot cookies."
He was arrested during a traffic stop -- and police said he was carrying a bag chocolate chip cookies and cookie dough, both of which smelled like marijuana.
Blair has waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and a pre-trial conference in the case is set for June 2nd. He's free on a $1,500 bond, and he's still working -- but not at the restaurant.
