Five Scotia-Glenville High School students were suspended Wednesday after consuming pot brownies that one of the students had brought to school, district spokesman Bob Hanlon said Friday.
Hanlon said the students involved were both male and female and from different grades. A male student brought the brownies to school and gave them to specific students, who consumed them on school grounds, Hanlon said.
District officials think the students were aware of what they were eating; the student who brought the brownies to school was not selling them, Hanlon said.
"We believe they did, which was why they were suspended," Hanlon said of whether the students were aware of what they were consuming.
The students were given five-day suspensions and have a hearing scheduled for the week after the school break. The district notified police but no arrests were made.
