Middle Schooler Arrested For Bringing Weed-Infused Cheetos To School

In Florida, a middle schooler arrested for bringing weed-infused Cheetos to school has parents nervous about their own kids.



With the inception of legal marijuana throughout the majority of the United States (at least on a medicinal scale), cannabis products have become increasingly easy to acquire. So much so, that it’s beginning to fall into the wrong hands. And in this bizarre case, wrong equates to underage, with a Florida middle schooler arrested for bringing weed-infused Cheetos to school.

The incident, which occurred Wednesday at a Broward County middle school, resulted in three students falling ill, one of whom ended up hospitalized.

According to WSVN.com, the snack food was labeled ‘Weetos,’ and closely resembled the classic crunchy Cheetos. Of course, there was one difference—the Weetos were strongly laced with THC.

Despite it’s close resemblance to the cheese-flavored snack food, two of the three students were, in fact, aware that they were laced with THC.

The 15-year old girl that was accused of bringing the snack food to Driftwood Middle School has since been arrested and charged with possession of THC. She was later released to her parents but faces a 10-day suspension, as well as the possibility of expulsion.
