WALDORF, Md. – On April 27 at 2:16 p.m., the School Resource Officer and administrators at General Smallwood Middle School were notified that a student had ingested a gummy earlier in the day containing suspected THC which had been given to them by another student.
The student felt ill and went home, and was later taken to a hospital for evaluation. As officers continue their investigation to determine where the student got the edible, parents are urged to talk to their children about the dangers of ingesting foods or liquids that contain dangerous substances.
