Puyallup dad, daughter charged after teen made pot brownies that sickened classmates


Pierce County Sheriff’s Department finds 125 marijuana plants, hash oil operation inside home of Mike Miller.

PUYALLUP — A Puyallup man and his 16-year-old daughter are behind bars — accused of bringing pot brownies to school that sickened other students.

A judge set bail at $35,000 for 45-year-old Mike D. Miller. He is charged with unlawful delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.

The Pierce County Sherriff’s Department says Miller admitted to giving his daughter hash oil to make pot brownies, but that he did not know she was going to bring them to school.

On Tuesday morning, four students at Emerald Ridge High School in Puyallup reported getting sick after they say they ate pot brownies and a lemon bar given to them by Miller’s daughter. Two of the students say they didn’t know the treats were laced.

“They had fairly major physical effects on the kids. They made them sick. Not a little bit high, but made them sick and that’s a problem,” said Sheriff Paul Pastor.

Documents show the teens felt shaky, dizzy, anxious, and had elevated heart rates and blood pressure. The Sheriff’s Department is concerned with the legalization of marijuana, this could happen more often.

“This is dangerous because you don’t know the level of THC that is in these items and you could end up killing someone and getting someone extremely sick if they don’t know what they’re eating,” said Det. Ed Troyer.

Authorities searched Miller’s home and say they found a hash oil operation, along with 125 marijuana plants. Miller also admitted to letting his daughter to smoke pot with him.

Miller’s daughter remains in juvenile detention and is facing up to a 3 month suspension from school.

He reported being a single parent but CPS says the teen cannot live with her father once released.

There will be a child custody hearing at Raymann Juvenile Detention Hall on Thursday.

    Responsible parents lock their medications away prescribed or not prescribed if they love their children. Obviously this father wasn't looking to show by example maturity and responsibility. I'm tired of parents trying to be their children's friend this is parallel to parents who host parties where alcohol is served to minors. And I am sure responsible patients are disappointed with another person abusing the rights they fought sought hard for.

    Goes to show the right amount of idiot in a person can bring harm to others and their freedom to exercise their rights responsibly as intelligent people who diligently respect the welfare of others in the exercise thereof.
