Warning for Sweets containing psychoactive substances
In the news 05/10 there were reports of children feeling unwell having eaten what appeared to be sweets in a Camden School. The main symptoms they presented with were nausea, hyperactivity, elevated heart rates and hallucinations. Early indications are that they will all make a full recover but we await confirmation.
We understand the sweets probably contained THC, which is the principal psychoactive substance in cannabis, and the dose each sweet contained was potentially very high. We await forensic testing to confirm this and a police enquiry is underway to ascertain the circumstances around this incident.
We have included an image of the packaging for these ‘sweet’s’ for your information below
