High school student suspected of distributing marijuana-infused candy

— The Steamboat Springs Police Department charged a Steamboat Springs High School student on suspicion of distributing marijuana after an incident Wednesday.

Officer Kristin Bantle said rumors began circulating at the school Wednesday related to edible marijuana products.

She said a male student told her he found a bag of candy while getting onto the school bus. Six female students recognized what the candy actually was, and they wanted it. The rest of the edibles went to someone else.

Bantle said the male reported the edibles were red and had dots that made them look like raspberries. They were in a plastic bag.

Bantle said the school was going to handle disciplinary procedures for the female students. The male student was suspended and charged with misdemeanor distribution.

Bantle said the male would likely go through the juvenile justice diversion program.
