Columbia, South Carolina (WIS)-According to Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon, an elementary school teacher in Lexington County was accused of containing cannabis food in her student prize box.
According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, 27-year-old Victoria Farish Weiss was charged with possession of Schedule 1 drugs and used a personal guarantee to leave the country.
According to the department’s report, Weiss bought a bag of mixed candies from General Dollar to give to her students. On September 23, two students were allowed to receive prizes from the candy box.
According to the report, a student grabbed the “Stone Patch Kids” gummies, thinking they were Sour Patch Kids. Weiss told the students to grab other things, but the children still left with hemp food. The other grabbed a Dum Dums lollipop.
“We were involved in this case after receiving the news on September 23, because a Rocky Creek Elementary School student picked a packet of marijuana from a box full of Weiss candies to reward students,” Koon said . “Detectives confirmed in the interview that Wes took a bag of food from the student and told him to pick other things from the box. The student returned to the box and happened to take another bag of food.”
After receiving the prize, the student with the fudge went to a daycare center after school and asked his teacher there to help him open the package.
According to the report of the responding deputy, the after-school project teacher noticed that the bag was not Sour Patch Kids, did not open the bag, and contacted the child’s school.
According to the arrest warrant, upon learning of the incident, the assistant principal of Rocky Creek found another packet of hemp jelly in the prize bowl, and the deputy found THC food at Weiss’s house.
The law enforcement report also stated that when Weiss’s assistant principal approached her, she was “hysterical”.
Kun said that no student had eaten these foods.
According to school district officials, as of October 13, Weiss was no longer employed by Lexington First School District.
“The safety of our students is our top priority,” said Superintendent Dr. Greg Little. “It is unacceptable that staff may threaten the well-being of children. We will continue to work hard to ensure that all our children have a safe learning and growth environment. Rocky Creek Elementary has a reputation and will not be tarnished by one’s actions.”
The package claims that the soft candy contains 350 mg of THC. Sheriff Queens said these fudges are illegal in South Carolina.
