Three students at Ellsworth High School were charged with trafficking after they allegedly sold marijuana-laced Jolly Rancher candies at school, Ellsworth Police said.

Two 15-year-old boys from Ellsworth and Waltham and a 14-year-old boy from Ellsworth have been charged with aggravated trafficking of Schedule Z drugs, according to a report from WLBZ.

A former student, Adam Bradshaw, 19, was also charged with trafficking after allegedly providing the candy.

Another student reported the candy to school administrators Jan. 2, and school officials launched an investigation.

The charges are elevated because the three boys are minors and the candy was distributed at school.
