School pupils taken to hos­pi­tal af­ter eat­ing ‘cannabis in­gre­di­ent sweets’


Sweets eaten by school pupils who fell ill are be­lieved to have con­tained an in­gre­di­ent of cannabis. Thir­teen teenagers were treated by paramedics at La Sainte Union Catholic School in High­gate, north London, yes­ter­day, then taken to hos­pi­tal. Po­lice said the sweets are be­lieved to have con­tained tetrahy­dro­cannabi­nol, known as THC, an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent of cannabis. In­ves­ti­ga­tions are un­der way, to es­tab­lish how much THC was in each sweet, the Metropoli­tan Po­lice’s Cam­den branch said, adding that none of the pupils had be­come “se­ri­ously un­well”.
