Some shoppers had a high time at the weekend agricultural fair in Quepos. But not everyone appreciated it.
Fuerza Pública officers said they received tips from residents that there was something extra in that brownie recipe. A U.S. citizen and a Canadian were selling the baked goods at the feria. The recipe was right out of the Alice B. Toklas cookbook.
Police detained both men and identified the Canadian by the last name of Reid. They said he was 56. The U.S. citizen was identified by the last name of Francis. He was reported to be 63.
Officers said that they detected a strong odor of an illegal weed in some of the brownies. But they needed experts. Experts on drugs, that is, and not culinary expertise. So the

Both men were freed after questioning by prosecutors.

"Funny Brownies" at Agricultural Fair in Quepos
I HAD to add this as I think it's FUNNY (I personally don't smoke ANYTHING as I'm allergic to smoke of ANY kind plus I'm too much of a control freak to do drugs - but it reminds me of when I was in college and went to Rosarita Beach with a friends work buddies and the group knew I didn't do drugs at ALL - so they gave me some marijuana brownies withOUT telling me and it was VERY amusing!!! Needless to say I was the entertainment for the party and to this day never ate as many brownies in my life (oh those munchies you get with pot!!).
