Girl, 9, unknowingly hands out THC-laced candy to classmates, school says

Girl, 9, unknowingly hands out THC-laced candy to classmates, school says”

A nine-year-old girl who shared home-made candies with her classmates has said she did not know that the candies were spiced with marijuana.

According to KRQE, a fifth-grade student at the Albuquerque School of Excellence thought that her parents' edibles were actually delicious sweets, so she brought them to school and handed them out to her classmates last Thursday morning.

"I started feeling really dizzy. We asked to see the box, which had been tossed in the trash after it was empty", Del Curto said, adding that the box was retrieved from the trash, "and as soon as we looked at it, we said, 'nope, that is not candy'". You guessed it - she ingested "three or four pieces" while three other students ate just one gummy each. "I felt like the room was going to flip to the side", the student said.

The girl who distributed the candies ate about three or four herself, after which the school authorities noticed that she was acting "strange" and then sent her to the nurse.

"That means a single marijuana cookie or brownie, or any other marijuana edible, might contain as much as 100 mg of THC", the CDC explained.

Emergency services were called and the children were all seen by paramedics to ensure they did not suffer too severe a reaction. "The first thing that came to my mind is irresponsible parents because that's unsafe".

The student who brought them to school did not know they were medicinal, THC-laced gummies, Del Curto said.

"As marijuana becomes legal in each state it's going to become more and more of an issue I believe", said Del Curto. She urged parents to be careful where they leave drugs.

To combat the incident from happening again, all students received a lesson on how to stay safe and were reminded of the school's policy that forbids students from sharing items brought from home.

Incredibles brand medical marijuana later told the TV station they do not make gummy bears, and suspect someone counterfeited the logo.
