RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN - A student is accused of bringing chocolate candy to school that allegedly contained what drug users call Magic Mushrooms... WGNS is not releasing the name of the concerned resident who has close ties to Christiana Middle School, but did confirm with Rutherford County School Communications Director James Evans that the incident occurred on Thursday. Evans stated, “A student admitted to bringing it to school.”

As for the students who ingested the candy that contained the so called Magic Mushrooms... Evans told us, “The students were given immediate medical assistance from our nurses and EMS.”


The concerned caregiver has more questions than answers... Lisa Marchesoni with the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office stated, "The school resource officer is still investigating." In the county schools office - Evans told WGNS in an email, “Based on the outcome of our investigation, they are also being disciplined accordingly.”

That concerned caregiver suggested the child that had the candy, got it from their home... Again, the incident is still under investigation.
