Teacher Fired After Student Gets Marijuana Edible As Classroom Prize

An elementary school teacher is facing drug charges after one of her students found a marijuana edible in the classroom’s prize box...

As soon as police were informed of the incident, they searched Victoria Farish Weiss’ South Carolina home, where they found even more drugs.

“Marijuana edibles are cannabis-based food products. They come in many forms, but the items in this case were candy,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.

The teacher has since been fired.

Lexington County School District Superintendent Greg Little released a statement saying, “The safety of our students is our top priority. It is unacceptable for a staff member to potentially threaten the wellbeing of a child. We will continue to work to ensure all of our children have a safe environment to learn and grow.”
