Fire department responds to Northwestern student made ill by cannabis

The Evanston fire department and University Police responded to 1835 Hinman on Friday after an undergraduate student called 911 out of concern for her roommate’s health.

The roommate was incapacitated after smoking cannabis, said Dan McAleer, deputy chief of University Police. She signed a waiver refusing transport to the hospital. Officers issued citations to both students after observing a bottle of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey and a bottle of Menage a Trois wine in plain sight, McAleer said. Both students are under 21.
