At least seven Edison High School students have been transported to a Fresno hospital after eating brownies containing an unknown substance. The authorities believe that all of them must have eaten pot brownies, probably brought by one of them from home against school’s policies.
Pot Brownies Sends High Schoolers Straight to ER
According to the Fresno authorities, on Friday morning, at approximately 11:40, the Edison High School’s nurse’s office called 911. The caller told the emergency dispatcher that some of the students became ill after eating a couple of brownies.
Several minutes later, a team of paramedics arrived and took seven high schoolers to the emergency room for medical treatment. According to the hospital’s staff, the youngsters are in good shape and are responding to treatment.
As for the source of their symptoms, the doctors have speculated that the students might have eaten pot brownies. Jameli Haddad, one of the many parents who arrived at school after hearing about the incident, told the press that these things tend to happen and that he was straightforward with his child concerning drugs such as marijuana.
However, since the Prop 64 has passed, it would appear that incidents of this type have multiplied, as confirmed by Lindsay Sanders, the principal of the Edison High School. To prevent similar events in the future, the principal told students to refrain from bringing food or sweets from home in order to share them with their classmates.
In her statement, the school’s principal also declared that all parties involved in the recent pot brownies incident would face academic as well as legal consequences. Following the departure of the ambulances, classes were resumed, but the investigations have just begun.
As for the students who were taken to the hospital, they are feeling well and will soon be discharged.
