Woodbridge, CT (CTNow) — Two high school students face drug charges after one bought marijuana-laced crackers from the other and fell unconscious after eating it in the school cafeteria, police said.
Both 17-year-olds were arrested on drug charges and are scheduled to appear in New Haven Juvenile Court Monday, they said.
According to police, officers responded to a call about an unresponsive student in the cafeteria at Amity Regional High School at 12:45 p.m. Nov. 7.
They learned that the ill student had eaten marijuana that was mixed in with peanut butter and sandwiched between two saltine crackers, police said. The cracker "sandwich" was then baked, the boys told police.
The stricken student had bought the crackers from another student, who was found to have several other marijuana-laced crackers, police said. The sick student also had a number of the crackers, they said.
The student who sold the cracker was arrested and charged with sale of marijuana, police said.
After he was treated at an area hospital, the student who bought the cracker was charged with possession of marijuana and possession with intent to sell, they said.
Sgt. Frank Cappiello said it wasn't clear if there were other substances in the peanut butter that may have sickened the student.
