This is why you need to lock everything up. A fifth-grader in New Mexico found her parents medicinal marijuana gummies in her home, and decided to bring them into her school to share with her class. Teachers at the school, called “Albuquerque School of Excellence,” noticed that the children started to act a little strange, especially the girl who brought the candies. She apparently ate 3 or 4 of them, but 3 more students split one piece.

The student who brought the candy, in addition to acting strangely, complained that she “couldn’t see.” Officials at the school decided to call 911 to get treatment for the girl, as well as to watch the other students to make sure they were all ok. Everyone is fine (we assume), and there’s been no word from the parents, or mention of any charges. The edibles are reported as being “2 to 100 times more potent than traditional marijuana.”

Chalk that up as a big “oops.”
