There was quite the to-do at the Tabor, South Dakota Senior Center when a 46-year-old man's mom brought brownies to the center thinking they were a delicious treat. Instead, her son ended up getting arrested because the brownies were pot brownies.


The man was arrested just after New Year's Day, on January 5, 2022. Preceding the arrest, the Bon Homme County Sheriff's Office investigated was being called "possible poisonings" at the happened just after the New Year, on January 5, 2022.

According to the probable cause affidavit,

“An investigation into the incident led me to believe that the patients were all under the influence of THC from a batch of brownies that were brought to the Community Center”.

The man's mother said her son baked the brownies and she took them to the Senior Center card game not knowing they'd make everyone high. She handed over the rest of the brownies.

The talk around the center was that the son had been to Colorado over the last weekend and brought marijuana products back home. Including a pound of YHC butter. In Colorado, recreational marijuana is legal, but in South Dakota, where almost everything else IS legal, pot is not.

The affidavit also states,

“(He) admitted to bringing 1 pound of THC butter to make the pan of brownies and then went to bed, and his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game where several people ate them...he also said the remaining half pound of butter was still at his house.”

There have been no reports of injuries or illness.
