The superintendent said all the students are safe and healthy. They are now looking into how the student obtained the edibles. He says the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Department is also investigating, and it’s unclear if any parents could be charged.
The incident comes days after retail marijuana sales began in New Mexico, and the superintendent said that brings a whole new set of challenges. He said the district is currently drafting new training material for parents.
