School officials in Frederick suspect students may have eaten cupcakes made with an illegal substance. (Cupcake pictured is not one of those in question.)
A 16-year-old student was taken to the hospital this week after sharing a lunch hour cupcake that school staff believe may have been laced with an illegal substance.
In response, Frederick High Principal Denise Fargo sent a letter to parents Wednesday letting them know students are no longer allowed to bring food to school for sharing.
The Frederick County Sheriff’s department closed the investigation without charging anyone. Since the students ate the cupcake, deputies could not determine if it was actually baked with marijuana inside or not.
The student has been treated and released.
