Man sues Country Club after marijuana brownie prank goes wrong


It was the type of silly prank you might expect to see pulled at a fraternity house or in a comedy film, not at an exclusive country club — and in this case, the alleged victim apparently failed to appreciate the humor.

A Branchburg man is suing the Copper Hill Country Club and several of its members, claiming that he suffered from health issues after being duped into chowing down on a marijuana brownie there last year. Barry Russo filed the lawsuit against the private, member-owned club in the Ringoes section of East Amwell, club President James MacDonald and club members James Kavanagh Jr. of Westampton and Gregg Chaplin of Raritan Township — the latter two of whom are accused of serving the brownie in question.

The lawsuit, filed Dec. 31 in state Superior Court, describes Russo as a “68-year-old diabetic with high blood pressure and a previous history of … stroke” who, prior to the events described in the filing, had never ingested marijuana “in any form or fashion.” Click below for full story -
