Police investigated after officials at Orchard View Middle School found the cookie in December. Orchard View Superintendent Pat Walstra said the student's mother had permission to use medical marijuana.

Walstra said the student later was expelled from the Muskegon-area school.

"Possession of an illegal substance is not permitted on or near school," she explained.

Michigan voters in 2008 approved the use of marijuana for medical reasons.
