Nine Florida students hospitalized for eating 'THC-laced candy'
COOPER CITY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say nine students from a Florida charter school ate marijuana-infused candy and were hospitalized with stomach pains.
News outlets report students between the ages of 10 and 11 from Renaissance Charter School at Cooper City were hospitalized Friday.
A statement from school spokeswoman Colleen Reynolds says a student "inadvertently" brought in THC-laced candy in a package similar to a popular sour candy and shared it with their friends. Reynolds says EMS and law enforcement were immediately contacted.
Broward County Sheriff's spokesman and Battalion Chief Michael Kane says the students had abdominal pain after consuming the edibles. Kane says their injuries weren't life-threatening.
Sheriff's Sgt. Donald Prichard said no criminal charges were filed Friday, but the investigation is ongoing.
