March 6, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Several people had to be hospitalized in Huntington Beach after eating brownies laced with marijuana. Firefighters were on an unrelated call last night when they were approached by four people outside Mario's restaurant. They all complained of hallucinations, numbness and shortness of breath.

Officials said some of them had medical marijuana cards and said the brownies appeared to have been purchased at a marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles.

Authorities have not said if they plan to launch an investigation into the incident.
