Three middle school students in Orange County were hospitalized Wednesday after eating a marijuana brownie while on campus, school officials said. It was the second such incident in as many months at a school in Costa Mesa. Two seventh-graders went to the front office at TeWinkle Middle School at 12:40 p.m., complaining of stomach problems, Newport-Mesa Unified School District spokeswoman Laura Boss said.

Haroset , a blend of fruit, nuts and wine, is probably the most popular food of the eight-day holiday of Passover, which begins on Monday night. For the Seder, the feast commemorating the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt, haroset is spooned onto the Seder plate alongside other symbolic Passover preparations and is served as part of the ritual. Although haroset's brown color is meant to be a sad reminder of the mortar made by the Hebrew slaves, people's faces light up when it's time to sample it. Some Jews prepare extra haroset to use as a spread throughout Passover.

Although it's now legal to smoke weed in Colorado, you still can't secretly feed it to your classmates. Two University of Colorado Boulder students face multiple felony charges after the marijuana-laced brownies they brought to class put their professor in the hospital and sickened seven classmates, campus police said Sunday. November's voter-approved Amendment 64 made Colorado's marijuana laws some of the most relaxed in the nation, but Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19, may not get much help from it. The pair have been arrested on suspicion of planning and intentionally committing second-degree assault and inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means.

When Universal Music Group donated more than 200,000 recordings to the Library of Congress last year, it seemed like just a matter of time before some intriguing finds would emerge, and the first did this week: two prevoiusly unknown recordings by blues duo Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. The two tracks, recorded in 1946, long before singer and harmonica player Terry and guitarist McGhee became well-known in the folk and blues worlds, showed up on one of more than 10,000 16-inch lacquer discs that were part of the UMG donation.
