Pittsburg elementary student brings marijuana-laced treat to school

A California elementary school student took more than just your average lunchtime treat to school Monday.

Pittsburg police officers say the student brought a medical marijuana treat made with fruity pebbles. That student's older sister says she got the treat from a medical marijuana dispensary, and the student took it to school. Now, that has detectives investigating whether the older sister had a valid medical marijuana card.

The school's principal says at least eight students took bites of the treat, and that has parents concerned. "I didn't expect to talk to her at this age about it," said Sybil Alvarez, a mother of a 4th grader. "Now I'm going to have to because if she gets a hold of something like that it can definitely hurt her."

The school's principal says no action has been taken against the student that brought the treat, or the children who took bites of it.
