Trial ordered in pot brownie case
    #4658742 - 09/14/05 10:22 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)


Registered nurse William Jodry started feeling different after the fourth brownie.

His skin started tingling. A weight settled on his shoulders, as if he was wearing a heavy leather coat.

He found himself struggling to concentrate as he flipped through a manual about how to inject the medicine-filled syringe in his hand in a patient's intravenous line.

"I was starting to wonder, 'Am I having a stroke?' " Jodry said, "because, as nurses, we tend to think of the worst things."

Then the thought hit him, he said. "Someone ... spiked the brownies."

Jodry was among three Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center employees who testified Monday about experiencing symptoms including dizziness, giddiness and nausea April 20 after unknowingly eating marijuana-laced brownies.

Arthur Wayne Bethel, 29, will stand trial on charges that he baked the tainted treats that sickened as many as 11 hospital workers, Judge Dodie Harman ruled after Monday's preliminary hearing in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court.

The Morro Bay man pleaded not guilty June 29 to a felony charge of mingling a harmful substance with food.

According to investigative records, Bethel brought a plate of brownies to the San Luis Obispo hospital after joking with his wife's boss about National Stoners Day. He has denied putting marijuana in the treats.

At the time, Bethel's wife worked as a clerk on the medical and surgical floor of the hospital, court records show. She no longer works for Sierra Vista, hospital spokesman Ron Yukelson said Monday.

Evangelina Sanchez, a nurse's aide, said she grew ill about 3:30 p.m. that day, about a half-hour after eating two slightly burned brownies she found in the break room.

Sanchez said she felt so dizzy while waiting to pick up her children from Laguna Middle School that she threw up "two or three times." Then she dozed off for two hours while her children waited to leave.

When she tried to exit the school parking lot, Sanchez said she almost hit a tree.

Sierra Vista floor supervisor Elaine Jacobs also had trouble driving after eating one of the brownies, she told an investigator with the county District Attorney's Office.

"She found herself stopped at an intersection basically daydreaming, sitting there and not knowing why," said the investigator, Thomas Tolbert.

Hospital tests of the workers' urine revealed marijuana, prosecutors said. The San Luis Obispo Police Department confirmed those results after testing a sample of the brownies saved by Jodry, Tolbert said.

On Monday, Bethel quietly watched the witnesses as they spoke. He sat next to his attorney, Dave Fisher, with his hands in his lap.

"The case against the defendant that he performed an illegal act is very slim to none," Fisher said during the preliminary hearing. "I think it's too many pieces with not enough filler between them."

Deputy District Attorney Linda Luong declined to comment.

Bethel is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 12 for a second arraignment.

man im all for a good prank, but nurses who have never gottesn stoned before, that is just wrong. they have peoples lives in their hands.

also when you eat weed it seems to hit you stronger and last longer imho. even after smoking for a few years in the past, after eating some weed cookies i made i was FUCKED



"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
