2 Olathe students treated for dizziness, nausea after edible marijuana incident

Two students went to a hospital emergency room with complaints of dizziness and nausea after an incident last week in which students at Olathe’s high school and middle school received edible marijuana products from another student.

Olathe Police Chief Justin Harlan said Monday that the student suspected of distributing the drug-laced product is facing charges including juvenile possession of marijuana. A felony charge of distribution may be pending.

“We’re still working with the school,” Harlan said of the investigation.

Harlan said the incident involved a handful of students, but he wouldn’t elaborate.Olathe High School is reportedly holding a schoolwide assembly on drug awareness, according to a letter sent home to parents, though a date was not mentioned.

Neither a spokeswoman with the Montrose County School District nor Olathe High School Principal Scot Brown returned calls for comment Monday.
