A 9-year-old girl unwittingly ate, and handed out to other classmates, THC-laced candy, school officials said.
The girl brought the candies to school last Thursday and said she could not see; another girl ate them and started to feel dizzy, Albuquerque School of Excellence Dean of Elementary School Students Kristy Del Curto told KRQE.
“We noticed the student who initially brought the edible to our school was acting strange. She started saying she couldn’t see,” Del Curto said.
Three students shared one gummy and the student who handed it out had three or four pieces, Del Curto said.
Paramedics were called and monitored the students, who eventually recovered.
The student who brought them to school did not know they were medicinal, THC-laced gummies, Del Curto said.
“As marijuana becomes legal in each state, it’s going to become more and more of an issue, I believe,” Del Curto said.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday that a government shutdown would have a "terrible impact" on the military, which he said deserved the full support of the nation.
The government appears to be on the verge of a shutdown with Republicans and Democrats at an impasse over its funding amid a larger debate about the DACA program.
Asked if a shutdown would have serious ramifications on military operations after he made remarks about national security strategy in Washington, Mattis flatly responded, "Yes."
Mattis said a number of operations would be disrupted by a shutdown, and 50 percent of his civilian workforce would be furloughed.
"That's going to impact our contracting. It'll impact obviously our medical facilities," Mattis said. "It's got a huge morale impact. How long can you keep good people around when something like this happens?"
President Donald Trump remarked Thursday that a shutdown would hurt the military most of all.
Mattis added that intelligence operations would stop, and training for the entire reserve force would also cease.
"You must understand the critical importance of our reserves. They're the only shock absorber we have," he said. "It's got a terrible impact."
"The value of the American military is grossly enhanced by the sense of the American model of government, of the people, by the people, for the people, can function and carry out its governmental responsibilities," he said.
Mattis, a retired general, said he didn't just serve in the Marine Corps but the "U.S." Marine Corps, and the military was accountable to the people and deserved its support.
"I just tell you that they deserve full support, and we have got to come to grips with this as a nation," he said.
WHITFIELD: "But then five Republicans voting against this from states where trump carried it. So, I mean, this isn’t a giant gamble, is it."
McGUIRE: "I think it is a huge gamble on the Democrat’s part. If you read The New York Times it is clear that Democrats are hoping in November people forget about the shutdown. They are gambling that people forget about this and they feel like they need to do this right now to appease their base. But hopefully by November other voters in these red states will have forgotten about it and that shows where the leverage is here and that is on the Republican side."
A CNN reporter admitted on Sunday that her network’s obsession with Russia is out of touch with most of the American public.
“I’m so interested to see how the Russia investigation affects things, because so far, out in these districts when you talk to people about Russia, and that’s all we talk about at CNN basically, they say they don’t care,” Maeve Reston, a national politics reporter at CNN, said on “Inside Politics.”
“It doesn’t have any effect on their lives.”
CNN, along with MSNBC, have focused heavily on the Russia investigations being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and three congressional committees.
Democratic lawmakers appear frequently on both networks to push the idea that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. The network also frequently interviews contributors and analysts who speculate about possible collusion, though none have offered proof that it actually occurred.
Reston also said on Sunday that in her interviews with voters, she has seen growing confidence in the economy during President Trump’s first year in office.
“You are starting to see that uneasiness about the economy sort of dissipate,” she said.
“Remember, even in 2016 when we went out to these swing states and talked to voters, there was still this fear that things were suddenly going to turn down again.”
“You don’t feel that as much anymore.”
A nightclub has been shut down after a video emerged showing women stripping to their underwear and performing erotic dances.
The viral video shows a number of girls putting on a show for the men around them - reportedly so they could get free drinks.
Authorities took a dim view of the footage, filmed secretly at the Bellha club in Necochea, Argentina.
Club bosses banned cameras while the striptease was going on, but the footage captured a blonde and two brunettes writhing at the bar.
The blonde seems somewhat shy but manages a few hip gyrations, while the brunettes cuddle each other as they dance more uninhibitedly to AC/DC's Back In Black.
Giant, savage rats are 'jumping for the throats' of people in Paris, French media is reporting.
Much of France has been shocked by video footage of a huge build-up of the 'mega rodents' in a rubbish bin.
The video was shot by a Parisien on the banks of the River Seine - near Notre Dame Cathedral and the Orsay art gallery.
It was published on Sunday by the capital's local paper La Parisien.
A council worker says on the video: "For the past year, there’s been a proliferation of rats in all areas bordering the Seine.
"A colleague told me that a rat jumped at his throat, and another towards his arm.
"To my knowledge, there haven’t been any bites for the moment, but we shouldn’t be waiting for a tragedy."
A mass brawl involving nearly 200 people has broken out at Hannover Airport, German police have confirmed.
Dramatic footage shows brawlers throwing punches and kicks at each other, and using flags as weapons as stunned passengers fled to safety.
Reports say the fight, which happened this afternoon, involved a staggering 180 people, and officers used pepper spray to separate both sides.
According to news site Haz , it happened during a demonstration by Kurds over Turkish military action in Syria.
A tweet by Hannover police said: "According to initial information, there is currently a major dispute at Hannover Airport. We are already on our way with many forces!"
It is thought that the protesters were confronted by Turkish passengers, and the fight broke out at Terminal B.
In Texas, Comal County Judge Jack Robison tried to convince a jury that a defendant was not guilty because God told him so.
By invoking an imaginary conversation with an imaginary God, Judge Robison was trying to “sway jurors to return a not guilty verdict in the trial of a Buda woman accused of trafficking a girl for sex.”
Judge Jack Robison apologized to jurors for the interruption, but defended his actions by declaring: When God tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it.

When men and women are elected to serve in either branch of Congress, they are supposed to be working on behalf of American citizens, focused on the issues that matter most to them, specifically for the residents and voters of the state and/or district that sent them to Washington.
But according to The Daily Wire, it would appear that Democrat Illinois Senator Dick Durbin is “focused” and “working” on behalf of an entirely different constituency than would be presumed by most people — namely illegal immigrants, and not American citizens or the voters within his own state.
The Senate Minority Whip, a top leader in the Democrat Party, was recently asked by a reporter to respond to allegations that he had lied about President Donald Trump making the now-infamous “s***hole” remark during a recent closed-door discussion in the White House about immigration reform efforts.
Forces entered the country's Afrin province today just 24 hours after pounding the region with airstrikes.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim reportedly said they are targeting US-backed Kurdish fighters.
Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armoured vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might.
But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back.
YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said "all the Turkish military's ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat."
A statement from the militia said: "Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender... we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the attacks."
Turkey has claimed the massive movement of military hardware into the country is simply to create a 30km-deep "safe zone" in the north of the country.
Lured by the charm of little Havana or the glamour of South Beach, some 15 million tourists visit Miami every year.
But for a growing number of Russian women, the draw isn't sunny beaches or pulsing nightclubs. It's U.S. citizenship for their newborn children.
In Moscow, it's a status symbol to have a Miami-born baby, and social media is full of Russian women boasting of their little americantsy.
"It's really common," said Ekaterina Kuznetsova, 29. "When I was taking the plane to come here, it was not only me. It was four or five women flying here."
Ekaterina was one of dozens of Russian birth tourists NBC News spoke to over the past four months about a round-trip journey that costs tens of thousands of dollars and takes them away from home for weeks or months.
Why do they come?
"American passport is a big plus for the baby. Why not?" Olesia Reshetova, 31, told NBC News.
"And the doctors, the level of education," Kuznetsova added.
The weather doesn't hurt, either.
"It's a very comfortable place for staying in wintertime," Oleysa Suhareva said.
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall that companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state.
A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento, and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle-class families.
PELOSI: "The challenges that I see is that there are those, it has been reported to me, there are those on the Republican side who have some unease in increasing the domestic budget because they know that they already had a big increase in the deficit in the tax bill and are reluctant to add any more investments for fear it would increase the education, fear it would increase the deficit. However, these investments in research and development, in really bring money to the ref so they help decrease it. In fact, I think most economists will tell you that nothing brings more money to the treasury than the investments in education, early childhood, K through 12, higher education, post grad, lifetime learning for our workers. In that spirit of saying you want more in defense, we're respectful of that, we need more in domestic, hopefully you'll be respectful of that."
CABRERA: "Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can't have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunez memo, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, that he's put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us what exactly is it?"
SCHIFF: "It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge. They've not even read. So they don't know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they've made common cause once again with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It's in a redux of the campaign. We have assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hash tag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what's driving this. And that is --"
CABRERA: "Why not allow peel to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it's useful information or not?"
SCHIFF: "Well, because the American people unfortunately don't have the underlying materials and therefore they can't see how distorted and misleading this document is. The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that's a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it's a disservice to the country."
The head of a security company that worked on the set of the Netflix’s “House of Cards” accused disgraced Hollywood star Kevin Spacey of racism, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.
Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Service and Navy veteran, told the Mail exclusively that Spacey would refuse to acknowledge the black team members and made racist remarks.
Blue said Spacey was overheard by some of his employees telling a member of his personal security team, “I don't want n-----s watching my trailer,” referring to the Netflix show in which he played the lead role, Frank Underwood.
Blue, 51, cited “confidentiality” as the reason why he waited four years to come forward, but told the paper it came “to the point where people are being harmed, enough is enough.”
Alexander Seifalian, Director and Professor of Nanotechnology & Regenerative Medicine at NanoRegMed, is carrying out the bombshell research in London.
He is developing an artificial vagina made from synthetic or biological material and a patient’s own cells.
It is set to benefit women with conditions like Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, in which the vagina does not fully develop.
It could also help those who suffer from vaginal artesia, a disorder where the vagina is abnormally closed or absent.

Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 367 got three redesigned AH-1Z Viper assault helicopters at Marine Corps Base Hawai, December 19, 2017.
The AH-1Z airplane is a refreshed variant of the AH-1W, bringing new abilities and highlights into the squadron's arms stockpile.
"The AH-1Z's are supplanting the AH-1W's, which are basically from the 1980's," said Marine Corps Captain Julian Tucker, the squadron's ground preparing officer. "Some huge takeaways on the new airship can be abridged into more noteworthy fuel limit, weapons abilities, and situational mindfulness".
A school has removed the wall of a girls' toilet block leaving only the cubicle doors between users and other pupils.
Parents of children at St Mary's College, in Wallasey, Merseyside, have slammed the open plan redesign, with many concerned about their daughters' privacy.
A video shows the toilets, which are set back off a corridor, facing what are believed to be two classrooms and a CCTV camera, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Parents have claimed their children have been told the wall had been removed in a bid to stop smoking, bullying and pupils skipping class by hiding in the toilets.
The high school is a voluntary aided academy for 11 to 17-year-olds - meaning it is not run by the local authority and is self-governed.

A community is rallying around an East Bay grocery store clerk who got fired for trying to stop a crime. People can’t understand why trying to do the right thing got him canned.
When residents of Oakland’s Montclair District found out a beloved Lucky store employee of 17 years was fired for stopping a late night shoplifter they were outraged.
They all know him by his first name, Tang.
“His reward is getting fired from his job,” said Bradley White.
“I thought it was appalling,” said Diane Noroian, who lives in Montclair. “He followed the man out of the store and was spit on.”
Indeed, Tang was spit on by the shoplifter, and then fired by his company.
Lucky’s said it is corporate policy that employees don’t physically engage with customers.
But in a community worried about crime, many appreciated a store employee’s efforts to protect customers and try to stop a crime from happening.
“In the Village itself, there have been laptops stolen, purses stolen – it’s frightening ,” said Noroian. “I don’t feel safe coming down to the Village.”
Many appreciated a store employee’s efforts to protect customers and try to stop a crime from happening.
Montclair resident Kathy Neal is one of them.
“On a day honoring Martin Luther King, a man who broke the rules to do the right thing, this is appropriate we are here trying to support someday who did exactly that,” she said.
“We do not have enough police patrolling the hills,” said Bradley White.
Some customers have even started a #SaveTang movement online.
CNN’s Jim Acosta resumed his role as White House punching bag on Friday when Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney shut him down during a briefing on the looming government shutdown.
Acosta asked, “How can it be the Schumer Shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate?”
Mulvaney smirked before firing back, “Come on, you know the answer to that as well as anybody. I laugh when people say that… you know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate… you know that?”
Acosta timidly acknowledged that he did, in fact, claim to know what Mulvaney was referring to before re-phrasing his question.
“The president asked Congress to come up with a solution for the Dreamers. Congress was in the room, members of Congress were in the room with the president last week, seemed to be a fairly productive meeting, and the whole process got blown up,” Acosta said. “It seems like the whole process was blown up by the president’s comment.”
Mulvaney tried to respond as Acosta spoke over him for a few seconds. The OMB director eventually stated that Democrats want Trump to be blamed for the shutdown.
“This is purely an attempt by the Senate Democrats, led by Mr. Schumer -- that’s why we call it the Schumer Shutdown -- in order to try and get a shutdown they think this president gets blamed for,” Mulvaney said.
