Calif. teen who sold pot brownies to buy prom dress could be deported

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

Saira Munoz of Yuba City was an 18-year-old senior at River Valley High School when prosecutors say she hired a friend to sell her marijuana-laced brownies. She was caught after a student got sick off one of the brownies.

She was convicted of a felony and sentenced to four years of formal probation and nine days in jail with credit for time served, the Sacramento Bee reported. That felony conviction, in turn, put her residency status in jeopardy after the Sutter County Probation Department informed the federal government about her conviction.

CBS Sacramento reported that Munoz was allowed into the United States from Mexico in 2000 on a temporary visa.

“People make mistakes,” her friend, Carlos Robles, told the station.
