A California bus driver is demanding an apology from one of his co-workers.

He says the guy gave him brownies laced with pot.

Mark Hall says a co-worker brought them in and three drivers ate them.

Hall also says the Metropolitan Transit Service knew about the brownies after two drivers had to be taken to the hospital and his bosses let him continue to drive.

"They know the brownies got some kind of drug in it, and instead of saying, ‘Hey stop the bus, pull over we are sending you to the hospital.'  I was dry mouthed, light headed and I hear I was giggling a lot and real bubbly, so I guess I was high and didn't know it.," the driver says. 

Right now, he is on unpaid administrative leave for his positive drug test.

He says he was told he could go back to work if he agreed not to hold the bus company liable and reported to a drug abuse counselor.

He says the employee who brought in the laced treats is on paid leave.
