He laced chocolate brownies with marijuana, snuck them into his high school, sold them for $15 each and managed to harm two fellow students in the process, police say.

Montgomery County Police have charged William Conrad Keysar, 18, a senior at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, with four criminal counts including distribution of a controlled dangerous substance on school property.

According to charging documents filed in Montgomery County District Court, on the day before Thanksgiving, Keysar roamed the hallways of Montgomery Blair selling pot brownies to students who wanted to make their classes a bit more... interesting.

The shenanigans took a turn south when two girls walked into the school's health room appearing confused and complaining of elevated heart rates. As the nurse checked their vital signs, the students admitted to scarfing-down the illegal confections earlier in the day. The nurse then called 911 and ambulances transported both high schoolers to Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring.

Word travels fast in high school, and it was only a matter of minutes before students began to flip on Keysar. One male student told school security that Keysar had "planned" to bring his forbidden snacks to school that day. Security officers reviewed school surveillance video, which according to police, captured the 18-year-old dishing-out the goods from his book bag. The transactions happened in school hallways.

During a sit-down interview with school security, Keysar reportedly admitted to using Montgomery Blair as a market for peddling his homemade pot brownies.

"This matter was immediately referred to police who investigated and charged the student. We've also addressed it as a disciplinary matter with the students involved," a Montgomery County Public Schools spokesman said in a written statement emailed to ABC7 News. It's still uncertain if school leaders sent a letter home with parents, notifying them about the situation.

Keysar will appear in Montgomery County District Court, but a hearing date has yet to be arranged. The high school senior faces up to 50 years in prison.
