boy 4 marijuana snack time
A four-year-old Connecticut boy brought nine wrapped bags of cannabis to his elementary school for snack time, police said.
Mark Benigni, the school superintendent, said the teacher confiscated the drugs quickly and that the other children were not aware of what happened, according to the newspaper.
"Our concern is for the four-year-old student who had no knowledge of what he was bringing to school," Benigni told reporters. "The student is safe, and we will continue to ensure a safe learning environment to all of our students."
Police said they were investigating the incident, but no arrests were made so far.
Investigators identified the child's mother but have not yet released her name, The Hartford Courant reported.
