IONE (KRON) — Parents at one California junior high school are having to reteach an age-old lesson: Don’t take candy from strangers, or in this case, classmates.
This comes after one student brought meth-laced pills disguised as candy to school. It is a common lesson for kids and teenagers, but this week, in the small town of Ione in Amador County, many parents are teaching their kids to say no to candy.
A school voicemail informed parents that some candy was taken from a student and later tested positive for meth.
An official said the student who brought the pills to school is an eighth grader.
The 14-year-old is now facing a drug charge.
