A Georgia middle-schooler has been suspended for passing out what parents believe to be THC-infused

“edible gummy bears,”

Insider reports. 

The incident took place at Chapel Hill Middle School in Decatur, Georgia, according to CBS affiliate WGCL. The school district’s spokesperson told the outlet that one student at the middle school gave gummies to four other classmates which they described as

“edible gummy bears.” 

“Although it was never proven that the candies contained anything out of the ordinary, the school promptly contacted the families of the students who allegedly received them,”

the statement from the district said.

“They were informed of this incident and what the school had learned. Thankfully, no health-related reactions have been reported because of this incident,”

the statement continued. Parents expressed outrage over the alleged THC-infused gummies and accused the school of not being transparent with every parent.

“I definitely didn’t know and my grandson goes here,”

grandparent Dewan Green told the outlet.

“The parents needed to be contacted.”

The student who distributed the candy was given a 10-day suspension.
