A Yuba City, Calif., teen may be deported after she sold pot brownies laced with the drug to raise money to buy a prom dress.

Saira Munoz, 18, reportedly couldn't afford a dress to wear to the annual school dance, so she baked brownies with marijuana and hired a fellow student to sell them for her at a school bake sale.

On Monday, a judge sentenced the high school student to four months of probation and and nine days in jail with credit for time served. She was charged with employing a minor to sell marijuana, which is a felony in California, according to KOVR-TV. 

Her scheme fell apart when a friend and fellow student, Carlos Robles, got sick from the brownies and needed to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance.

“I was hurt, because she got arrested, and nobody wanted to see somebody we cared about go away,” he told KOVR-TV. "People make mistakes."

Munoz, who came to the United States from Mexico with temporary permission in 2000, learned during her sentencing that she could be heading back home to Mexico. After the Sutter County Probation Department called the feds about her conviction, she could now be deported, according to KOVR-TV.

The news caught the attention of immigration officials in California, and they said they are reviewing Munoz's case. Officials have not yet called for a deportation hearing.

Some feel her actions don't warrant her deportation.

"No, there's people that deserve to be deported, and she just wasn't one of them," Robles told KOVR-TV. "There's people that do way worse."

Recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado and Washington, and more states are in the process of legalizing medical marijuana use.
