CLEVELAND (AP) — Police in Ohio say gummy candies suspected of being laced with marijuana were given to some students at an elementary school.

Cleveland police say they were called Monday to Anton Grdina Elementary School after some children were given the gummies by other children. Police say one boy said he brought the candy from home.

Police say medics transported nine children to Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital with some complaining of upset stomachs after questioning. The hospital said doctors saw 15 students there and all were released by Monday evening.

A police report says a doctor noted one child tested positive for THC — the psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Police say that was the child who said he brought the candy from home.

The investigation was continuing.
