"She had this box, it had a label on it that said 'Incredibles.' We just thought it was ordinary gummies", said one of the students who ate the edibles. "I felt like the room was going to flip to the side", said the 9-year-old.

Four students at the Albuquerque School of Excellence ingested the gummies and suffered sickness, including one child who passed out on the floor, KRQE reports.

The girl who distributed the sweets ate about three or four herself.

"She started saying she couldn't see", Kristy Del Curto, the dean of elementary school students at Albuquerque School of Excellence, told KRQE.

According to Ms Del Curto three students ate one lolly each, while one student ate three or four and suffered more severe effects.

"That means a single marijuana cookie or brownie, or any other marijuana edible, might contain as much as 100 mg of THC", the CDC explained.

School officials quickly called 911 and paramedics to ensure students didn't have a unsafe reaction.

The child who brought the gummies began to feel ill while in class and the teacher sent her to the school nurse.

"The first thing that came to my mind is irresponsible parents because that's risky", said the father of the 9-year-old.

The fifth-grade student told KRQE that she nearly immediately knew what she was given was not an ordinary gummy candy.

"As marijuana becomes legal in each state it's going to become more and more of an issue I believe", said Del Curto.

The 9-year-old says she knows that drugs are unsafe and bad.

"All those lessons I took about not taking drugs were all for nothing". Del Curto also said they are urging parents to be cautious with any drugs in their homes and have asked students not to share anything brought from home among others in the school.

"We reminded them that this is why we have a policy of no food or drink from homes", Del Curto said.
