Paramedics Called After Charter School Students Consume Edibles

Three ambulances were sent to a charter school in Los Angeles on Tuesday to perform a health check on several students who had consumed edible cannabis while on campus.

Los Angeles police officers also responded to investigate the incident, reports KTLA.

Shortly after 3 p.m., authorities received a call from the Endeavor College Prep charter school on South Soto Street in Boyle Heights reporting that some students had ingested cannabis.

School administrators suspect an 8th-grade student of bringing the edibles to school and sharing them with several of their classmates.

While other recent incidents involving edibles at school have often included trips to the hospital for students who experienced temporary symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and lethargy after consuming edibles, the Endeavor College students did not exhibit any signs of being under the influence of THC.

According to an alert from the Los Angeles Fire Department, up to seven students had ingested an unconfirmed edible but they all appeared to be non-symptomatic, so none of them were taken to the hospital.

Endeavor College executive director, Edward Morris released a statement noting that parents have been very cooperative as school officials continue to compile information in their investigation of the incident.
