Two Oshawa grade school students had to be treated at hospital Wednesday after one of them snuck medicinal cannabis cookies from a parent and ate them, Durham Regional Police say.
Ambulances were sent to Hillsdale Public School on Oshawa Boulevard North on Wednesday after two students, in Grade 7 or 8, fell ill.
Police say a father of one of the students who has a medicinal cannabis license baked a batch of cannabis cookies “for his personal consumption.”
Some of the cookies, police explain, were “taken from the home without consent.”
According to officers, a student and a friend ate the cookies at school and became seriously ill.
The Durham District School Board said the two students “exhibited signs of consumption and impairment.”
