Thomas Cunningham, 21, and Mary Essa, 19, reportedly baked the brownies as part of a "bring your own food day" at the University of Colorado.

Police officers were called to the campus on Friday after the professor complained of dizziness and going in and out of conciousness - she was taken to hospital.

Three students were also taken to and later released from hospital and five other classmates were suffering from the effects of cannabis, the University of Colorado police department said.
