The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating pot brownies apparently eaten at a middle school in Ashburn, Va., Wednesday.

Nine eighth-graders apparently ate the brownies at Farmwell Station Middle School. The boys and girls didn’t act unusual or get sick, but Principal Sherryl Loya heard about it Thursday and called in the students and their parents.

Early Thursday evening, the school resource officer was notified.

After the social media rumor mill was spreading word that 20 students were involved, Loya did a robocall to set the record straight.

The school district and the sheriff’s office are investigating. The students will face some sort of school punishment, but it’s too early to say whether they’ll face charges.
