MEDFORD, Ore. — Two students of South Medford High had to be taken to the hospital today after becoming visibly ill — which school administrators say could be because they ate "marijuana-related edibles."

On Tuesday, a male South Medford student was hospitalized with similar symptoms. Law enforcement and school officials are still investigating whether that incident was caused by marijuana products.

According to Natalie Hurd with the Medford School District, the incident on Thursday does appear to be linked to marijuana. Hurd said that the two male students that were hospitalized ingested "marijuana-related edibles" that they received from another male student.

While it has not been confirmed that marijuana caused the students' symptoms, Hurd said that it may have been a factor.

All of the students involved could face disciplinary and possible legal action depending on the outcome of the investigation.

The three students in total who were hospitalized this week appear to be unharmed.
