COOPER CITY, Fla. – Nine students from a Florida charter school ate marijuana-infused candy and were hospitalized with stomach pains, officials said.

News outlets report students between the ages of 10 and 11 from Renaissance Charter School in Cooper City were hospitalized Friday. 

A statement from school spokeswoman Colleen Reynolds said a student “inadvertently” brought in THC-laced candy in a package similar to a popular sour candy and shared it with their friends.
