SHARPSVILLE, Pa. (WYTV) – School officials in Sharpsville are looking into a situation involving a high school student who was selling or attempting sell what is being called “seeds.”
According to Sharpsville Superintendent Dr. Brad Ferko, school officials were recently made aware of a student who was disseminating the product that may cause a pain relieving effect or could be hallucinogenic.
Ferko said anything that is brought on school grounds by a student that may have a drug-like effect, even if it is legal, is against school policy.
“We met with kids. We got information and as of yesterday, we have tied up the investigation, and we are moving ahead,” said Dr. Brad Ferko, Sharpsville superintendent. “It is a disciplinary case, so I can’t discuss any of the particulars.”
While the Superintendent stresses the incident involved only a handful of students, parents in the district were notified about what had occurred.
Sharpsville police said at this point it does not appear any laws were broken since the seeds in question are not actually drugs.
Sharpsville police and school administrators are working to obtain and identify the product.
