WEST MIFFLIN, PA (WCMH) — Several Pennsylvania high school students could soon face charges for handing out drug-laced candy.
The West Mifflin Borough Police Department says multiple students at WMASD High School were selling Kushy Punch candy.
“It basically looked like a square block of a gummy candy that was packaged and wrapped to identify itself as a pain reliever,” Superintendent Dr. Daniel Castagna toldWPXI.
Kushy Punch is a medical marijuana taffy made in California. It comes in compact sizes with multiple powerful doses of the drug THC.
With over 70mg of active cannabinoids, each Kushy Punch packs the potency of several slightly less powerful doses of 17.5mg of THC. In fact, each Kushy Punch is packaged as one slab that is then wrapped up in wax paper and marked as 4 individual doses on the package’s sticker.
One student was taken to the hospital as a precaution after eating the candy. The school district says disciplinary action will be taken. Charges against the students involved are pending.
