Marijuana Rice Krispies treats taken to school by Texas fifth grader

A fifth grade student brought Rice Krispies treats made with marijuana extract to his north Texas school.

Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin says an 11-year-old brought the edibles to Seven Hills Elementary in Newark and shared them with four other students.

“I believe they all knew it had some content of a drug that would help make them drunk,” Akin said.

According to Fox 4, Northwest ISD says the students ate the treats Tuesday morning before school started. The sheriff says a teacher noticed something was wrong once the students got to class.

“They noticed the children’s eyes were glassy, more laughter than usual, motors skills were impaired,” the sheriff said. “One of them became combative.”

Akin says they are similar other cannabis infused edibles his department has found.

“Almost on a weekly basis, my deputies on patrol are intercepting edibles and other forms of marijuana coming into Texas on 287 from Colorado,” he stated.

The sheriff says two of the student were processed in the juvenile system but were not detained. Investigators are still looking into how the treats were obtained, and so far no arrests have been made.

    Huh, too bad it isn’t regulated and continues to be available on the street from shadowy sources.
