Three bus drivers in San Diego called in for replacements last Sunday after they reported feeling "dizzy." A better word for their state of mind, however, might be "totally blazed."That's because an employee of the city's Metropolitan Transit System is alleging that all three drivers ate pot brownies that were given to them by another employee, according to San Diego's 10 News. Those employees have been placed on leave while the transportation agency investigates what happened.

The employee that passed out the allegedly stonerlicious brownies blamed the whole thing on his roommate.

MTS Vice Chairman Ron Roberts didn't find the story funny at all: "This could have been a major disaster. It's not funny. It's not fun and it's irresponsible at the highest level."

On the bright side, the agency was happy to report that all the employees did the right thing by calling in and asking for a replacement when they noticed that they were feeling "dizzy."
