More than 14 students got sick after consuming gummy bears. These gummy bears were not the usual kind that you find in any local supermarket. People suspect that they might have had marijuana or another drug in their composition.
This is not a normal case of infestation or food poisoning. These students eat some gummy bears and after that, they were taken to the hospital because they experienced several symptoms including dizziness and increased heart rate. These symptoms are usually associated with drug consumption or abuse.
The investigators who are looking into this case believe that the candies were laced with marijuana or another substance but they did not confirm this rumor yet. They will have to take some tests before they are sure of what really happened.
The students that were taken to the hospital study at the Naperville High School and some of them admitted that those candies might have had marijuana in their composition. Of course, investigators will be the ones that will confirm this rumor if they find traces of any other substance in the gummy bears.
The good news is that the students are now alright and those who have been treated returned to their homes without any problems. Despite the fact that it is not confirmed yet, the gummy bears contained a substance which made the students feel sick because the symptoms that they experienced are not the usual ones for food poisoning.
Many people asked if these candies where Haribo sugar-free bears because some people have complained about feeling sick after consuming this product. Nobody answered their question but the statement that was posted on Facebook suggested that the problem was not the candy but another unidentified substance.
The high school posted that the students need to talk to their parents about healthy choices and ask for the help of a specialist when they need it. After the investigators conduct more tests on this matter, they will be able to confirm what made the students feel sick. Let’s hope that it is nothing serious and all of the students will be alright.
What is your opinion on this matter? Do you think that the gummy bears had dangerous substances in their composition?
