Calif. teen who sold pot brownies for prom dress faces deportation

A 19-year-old girl in Northern California who was convicted of selling pot brownies to purchase a prom dress now faces the possibility of deportation.

According to CBS Sacramento, Saira Munoz was an 18-year-old student at River Valley High School when she hired a fellow student to sell brownies laced with marijuana at a school bake sale. Munoz was caught after a student got sick from one of the brownies.

Munoz was sentenced on Monday to four years probation and nine days in jail with credit for time served.

She could be headed back to Mexico because of the crime, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“People make mistakes,” Carlos Robles, a friend of Munoz told CBS Sacramento. “There’s people that deserve to be deported, and she just wasn’t one of them. There’s people that do way worse.”

According to CBS Sacramento, Munoz came to the United States in 2000 with temporary permission.
