ORIGINAL STORY: Two high school students were taken to a local hospital for treatment today after they ate cupcakes that were reportedly laced with marijuana.
Emergency responders were called to McKinley High School just before 1:00 p.m. That’s because a male and female student were reportedly suffering side effects from marijuana-spiked snacks.
The students were transported to a local hospital for treatment. We’re told both are now in stable condition.
Sources also tell NBC33 News that a third student has been implicated in the ordeal as the supplier of the marijuana.
