Preschoolers Fell Ill from Teacher’s THC Candy 

A Texas preschool teacher is facing charges and lost her job after four 1-year-olds became ill after allegedly consuming marijuana edibles on Halloween. 

On Halloween, children enrolled at the Primrose School of Prosper were left in the care of their usual 35-year-old preschool teacher. 

During the afternoon, four of the 1-year-old children in the woman’s class started to feel sick, and employees at the school called 911 to report the situation. 

Police and first responders went to the school to investigate, and the campus was evacuated. The teacher from the classroom that the sick children were in also left the premises. 

The youngsters were taken to the Children’s Medical Center in Plano. 

It was reported that it appeared that the toddlers had ingested THC and it made them feel sick. 

After they were seen by medical professionals, all the children were sent home in stable condition.   

The authorities searched the classroom to see if they could find out what caused the youngsters to fall ill. 

According to reports, a black sweatshirt that was asserted to belong to the teacher was in the classroom. The garment was searched, and the authorities reportedly discovered THC-infused gummy candies. 

Although the hoodie was left unattended, the police believed the bag of gummy candy belonged to the teacher and that she was the one who placed it in the piece of clothing. 

The woman was arrested and booked into the Collin County jail on four counts of injury to a child and one count of possession of a controlled substance. She was released from incarceration the following day. 

She was fired from her job as a result of the incident.
