Florida Middle Schooler Faces Felony Charges After Giving Classmates THC Gummies
A central Florida middle school student is facing felony charges after bringing THC gummies to class and sharing them with other children. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said at a press conference last week that a 12-year-old boy brought a block of Green Hornet THC-infused gummies to gym class and shared them with four girls and two boys, who “devoured” nearly all of the ten 10-milligram doses. Five of the children were subsequently taken to the hospital with complaints of nausea and vomiting.
“One of them was all but passed out,” Judd said.
“It’s easy to figure out,” Judd added. “A 100-milligram bar that should be split into ten separate doses of legal-use in California of THC, is now distributed…between six children.”
The youth is charged with one felony count of possession of THC or marijuana resin and six counts of distribution of THC within 1,000 feet of a school. He has also been charged with one misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
The boy said he had been given the gummies on the school bus but his account of the source of the gummies kept changing, according to Judd. The sheriff theorized he may have purchased them over the internet
