San Diego bus driver who allegedly gave away pot brownies is fired

A San Diego bus driver has been fired after giving marijuana-laced brownies to three other drivers, officials at the Metropolitan Transit System said Thursday.

Ku'uipoaloha Lawler, 57, a driver for four years, has been fired for an incident in which the three drivers, unaware that the brownies had marijuana, were driving their routes when they felt impaired, officials said. Replacement drivers were sent to take their places.

One of the three is back at work. Two others remain on unpaid leave pending completion of an administrative procedure required of any driver who tests positive for drugs, officials said.
