A 15-year-old Saratoga Springs High School student was hospitalized after he ate THC-laced gummies. That’s what the fire chief told NewsChannel 13.

First responders were called to the high school around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Superintendent Dr. Michael Patton says the student had a negative reaction to the edible.


The school has launched a full investigation into who supplied it and when and where it was consumed. The superintendent says the distribution, sale, and possession of an illegal substance on school property is a violation of their code of conduct and there are consequences.

Patton says the student's parents were notified immediately.

The student is expected to be okay.
