UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio — An Ohio man is facing charges after his daughter allegedly brought his marijuana edibles to school and shared them with her friends.
Scott Macre is charged with endangering children, possession of drugs and obstruction in connection with the incident at Windermere Elementary School in Upper Arlington, WBNS reported.
On Friday, five students at the school were sick, showing signs of impairment ranging from nausea to an elevated heart rate, according to documents obtained by WSYX. Police said the children were all taken to the hospital after eating a “non-school food item” during lunch, according to WSYX.
Windermere Principal Julie Nolan told WCMH that every class in first through fifth grades began Monday by talking about the incident, with teachers reminding students not to share their food during lunch.
Court records indicate Macre’s 10-year-old daughter brought the marijuana edibles, which each contained 50 milligrams of THC, to school after mistaking them for leftover Easter candy, WBNS reported.
Macre allegedly told police he bought the edibles in Colorado in 2018 and that he uses them for a medical condition, WBNS reported.
Court documents show that after Macre found out that students had been taken to the hospital, he asked detectives to wait outside before disposing of the remaining edibles down the garbage disposal, WSYX reported.
