Police say they have made several arrests after a Richmond teenager required medical attention from consuming marijuana-laced candy. One 14-year-old was charged with drug crimes in connection with the incident while another was caught with drug-laced candy and prescription pills. A Chariho High School student was arrested for drug crimes on Monday.
Richmond Police Chief Elwood Johnson said the candy could have contained more than just THC.
A former member of the Chariho School Committee has pleaded no contest to violating the state’s social host law. The case stems from a party Terri Serra held for a group of teens back in 2011.
Terri Serra stood before Washington County Judge Kristin Rodgers and admitted procuring alcohol for minors at a party at her Richmond home. Some of the teens were injured after the party when their car crashed into a tree.
