Local News 4 reports that several Rock Island High School students became ill after eating gummy bears laced with THC on Tuesday afternoon. The gummies were reportedly passed out before the school day began.

School staff says the children were nauseated and were treated by the school nurse, but no one became seriously ill from the incident. One child was taken to their family doctor as a follow up.

The school adds that this is an "isolated incident" that is being investigated by the School Resource Officer, who will be punishing the student who passed out the candy.
