Bahamas: Seven kids hospitalized after consuming weed-infused treats at school; teen taken into custody

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — At least seven students from S C McPherson Junior High School were taken to hospital on Wednesday after consuming marijuana edibles brought to school by another student, Commissioner of Police Paul Rolle confirmed yesterday.

In an interview with Eyewitness News, Rolle said: “Four children were taken to the hospital by ambulance from S C McPherson School and last evening three persons were taken by the parents, who said the children went home and were not feeling well.

“We have a 14-year-old male in custody at the Drug Enforcement Unit who allegedly made some cakes which he took to school and distributed to those four persons and they in turn shared with some of their friends.”

In a statement on the matter, police said the student allegedly brought marijuana-infused Rice Krispy cereal treats to school and sold them to students.

Those students admitted to consuming the marijuana-infused treat.

Rolle said the 14-year-old boy is in “custody and he is expected to go to court tomorrow”.
