9 Students Suspended After Eating Marijuana-Laced Cookies During Assembly

CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (CBS Connecticut) — A Maine high school suspends nine students after they ate cookies laced with marijuana during a school ethics assembly.

The Forecaster reports that the students consumed the pot cookies during a day-long TEDxYouth event at Cape Elizabeth High School last Friday and got caught after some of the students began feeling sick.

The student that supplied the cookies received a 10-day suspension while the other students who ate them received a two-day suspension, according to The Forecaster.

Cape Elizabeth Police Capt. Brent Sinclair tells the Portland Press Herald that no students were taken to the hospital and that an investigation is ongoing.

None of the students’ names have been released.
