PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia school official says a student brought weed laced snacks to school and handed them out to more than a dozen students.

Charletta Zeigler, principal at West Oak Lane Charter School, says she called police Friday after students reported the incident.

Philadelphia police say the student gave laced “Rice Crispies” treats to at least 15 other students, who were medically evaluated at the K-8 charter school.

Zeigler says the students were released to their parents after being evaluated.

She adds the individuals were between the ages of 11 and 13 and that some of the students had been posting on social media Thursday, preluding to their plan to eat the snacks.

Officials did not say whether the student would be charged, saying it was “still early in the investigation.”
