10 students face drug charges for seeds brought to school

Posted:
DOVER, Tenn. -

Ten Stewart County High School students in Dover, Tennessee face charges after several students got sick and hospitalized for ingesting plant seeds.

Three of the students will be charged with imitation of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment. Seven others face simple possession charges.

On November 13, students ingested Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds, which cause hallucinations, among other side effects.

A judge has yet to decide whether the charges will bring a fine or probation.

Stewart County High School is located in Dover, about 80 miles northwest of Nashville.
