Chicago Teens Hospitalized After Eating ‘Laced’ Gummy Bears

Chicago Teens Hospitalized After Eating ‘Laced’ Gummy Bears

It’s suspected that the candy contained a liquid-based marijuana substance

It is unclear whether the students were aware the candy was laced, police said.

More than a dozen students at Naperville North High School in Illinois were hospitalized Dec. 6 after consuming gummy bears laced with a foreign substance.

Fourteen students were transported to Edward Hospital to undergo medical treatment after experiencing symptoms including elevated heart rate, dizziness, and dry mouth, ABC 7 reported.

"Our ER physicians suspect it was marijuana that caused the students' symptoms," Keith Hartenberger, a hospital spokesman, told CNN. "However, confirmation that the substance was marijuana would have to come from the Naperville Police Department -- they were going to do the official testing.”

The high school wrote in a Facebook post that it would “continue to review the specifics of the situation and will address it appropriately.”

It has not been determined whether the students will be punished for the incident. The school has gotten rid of its zero-tolerance policy and instead disciplines students on a case-by-case basis, Chicago Tribune reported.

A 17-year-old student was taken into custody for questioning, but he was released without being charged, according to CNN.

Investigators are also looking into how the gummy bears were distributed.

Naperville high schoolers get sick, dizzy after eating gummy bears

FOX 32 NEWS - A 17-year-old Naperville North High School student suspected of being the person responsible for distributing tainted candy that sickened other students was released from custody Tuesday night without charges.

The students got sick after eating what police believe were drug-laced gummy bears.

“In talking to some of the affected individuals, they believe these gummy bears were laced with something with marijuana, like a liquid-based marijuana substance,” said Commander Jason Arres of the Naperville Police.

The 9-1-1 calls started coming in around 10:30 a.m, and for more than three hours, ambulances rushed to and from Naperville North transporting students who got sick. Police are awaiting lab tests to determine exactly what was in the candy.

A total of 14 students were taken to Edward hospital for treatment, but only 12 had eaten the gummy bears. They were complaining of dizziness, rapid heart rate and dry mouth.

“I am disappointed, but I&aposm disappointed from the sense that I want our kids to be healthy and to make healthy choices. So absolutely, when we find kids in a situation where their health is at risk, their safety is in jeopardy, I am concerned,” said Dan Bridges, District 203 Superintendent.

In addition to a 17-year-old boy, police suspect 2-3 other students may have been involved in distributing the gummy bears, but it&aposs not clear if those who got sick knew what they were taking.

“I do think it&aposs possible that some of them did, but I&aposm pretty sure that not everybody did, that&aposs some of the things I heard like rumors that not everyone was aware of what was in them,” said sophomore Lily Brinkman.

“It surprised me, it&aposs not something that comes out of the student body, so I think everyone&aposs really shocked by it that something like this would happen,” said senior Chris Kohlei.

But others said they were not surprised at all. Police said there&aposs an important lesson here for students.

� knowledgeable about what you&aposre putting into your body,” said Commander Arres.

Police said a decision on any charges will come after additional interviews with students and discussions with the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office. They said they want to make sure the punishment fits the crime.
