In Florida, a mother has been arrested after her daughter was caught selling marijuana gummies at school.
So, how does a teenager get ahold of pot-laced candy to sell in middle school? Um, my first guess would be the parents. Cops thought so, too. After catching Christine Arguelles’ 14-year-old daughter and 13-year-old friend distributing the gummies for $10 a piece, the police and Lyons Creek Middle School principal made a surprise visit to the mother’s home.
Inside Arguelles’ freezer were 86 packages of gummies laced with THC. All the teenager had to do was reach in and scoop out a handful to sell to friends.
Both minors recieved possession with intent to sell, but mom’s negligence earned her a much heftier charge. In addition to possession, police arrested her for child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. It’s unknown how many kids at Lyons Creek bought or consumed the candy.
As of now, Arguelles is being held on a $117,500 bond. While she’s appealed to the judge and asked to him lower it , he’s refused.
