Police and first responders were called to Anton Grdina School to check on the students after a school staffer discovered a bag in a classroom with a label that said it contained THC candies, according to WOIO-TV.

Original story: More than a dozen elementary school students in Cleveland were treated Monday afternoon for eating gummy bears possibly laced with marijuana, according to news reports.

The 14 students, between the ages of 5 and 9 years old, attend Anton Grdina School and shared the gummy bears during lunch, WOIO-TV reported.

Paramedics were called to the school around 2 p.m. and transported the children to a local children’s hospital, where all were listed in stable condition later Monday.

The school issued a statement on the incident, saying it called emergency workers “as a precaution,” according to WOIO.

“The precaution was taken because the packing of the candy was not recognizable to school staff.”
