Mom busted after her daughter brought homemade weed candies to school

A Louisiana woman was busted for making THC-laced gummy candies — and her 11-year-old daughter was nabbed for handing them out to her classmates, authorities said.

Alexandra Price, 30, of Covington, was busted Tuesday after one of her daughter’s classmates had a reaction to one of the candies and needed to be taken to the hospital, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

When the student fell ill, a school resource officer notified detectives, authorities said.

The officer determined the source of the gummies — prompting detectives to search the pre-teen’s home, according to police.

There, investigators found several edibles and products laced with the marijuana ingredient that makes people high — as well as related paraphernalia.

Price admitted she had been making the products, police said.

She was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on five charges, including making controlled substances and cruelty to juveniles, authorities said.

Her daughter faces a single distribution charge because she allegedly knew what the gummies contained — and she was released into a relative’s custody, cops said.

“I applaud our resource officer and the staff at this school who immediately alerted detectives to launch an investigation after a student became sick, preventing the possibility of more children consuming the THC-laced gummies,” Sheriff Randy Smith said in a statement. “This is an example of how our schools and law enforcement work together every day to keep our children safe.”
