SULLIVAN, Maine (AP) — A Maine mother whose eighth-grade son brought the marijuana-laced brownies she had baked to his school and shared them with friends has avoided jail time.

Amanda Hiser of Sullivan received a 90-day suspended sentence and one year of probation in Hancock County Superior Court last week after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child. She had faced a charge of aggravated furnishing of a scheduled drug, a felony.

WABI-TV ( ) reports that the 33-year-old Hiser is licensed in Maine to use marijuana for her medical condition.

Prosecutors say her son brought the brownies to Mountain View Elementary School in Sullivan last fall and shared them with friends. Several students were suspended.
