A 48-year-old man and a 13-year-old girl are facing charges immediately after a 14-year old classmate became sickened from a cannabis-infused gummy bear at a college in New Jersey.
According to authorities, a 14-year-old female student at Thomas Jefferson Middle College became ill and began vomiting immediately after consuming a gummy bear that she had obtained from a 13-year-old student who told her that it would cease her from stressing out.
A later investigation revealed that the candy was also offered to other students through college hours.
The sickened girl was transported to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood exactly where it was determined that the gummy bear had contained THC.
Forty-eight-year-old former Fair Lawn Board of Education member Jeffrey Klein was arrested immediately after witness statements connected him with the incident. Klein was charged with possession of fewer than 5 grams of hashish and then released.
Klein relinquished his position on the Board in November immediately after failing to be elected for a different term, immediately after which, 4 teachers dropped ethics charges that they had raised against him.
The 13-year-old will be charged on a juvenile petition in loved ones court.
