Two Oshawa elementary school students were sent to hospital after eating pot cookies. One of the students brought them to Hillsdale Public School from home and shared them with a friend on Wednesday.
The Durham District School Board says the pair, who are senior students, exhibited signs of consumption and impairment, and were taken to hospital where they were monitored for elevated heart rates.
Durham police say one of the student’s parents, who has a medical cannabis license, had baked the cookies and they were taken without consent.
The Children’s Aid Society was contacted to conduct a review.
DDSB says they work with Durham Public Health and DRPS to educate students on the negative effects of drug use, misuse and abuse.
The board says the recent legislation legalizing marijuana has not had a significant impact on how schools are dealing with incidents involving cannabis.
