CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (AP) - Three Cape Elizabeth High School students are facing felony charges for allegedly selling marijuana-laced chocolate chip cookies at school.

Capt. Brent Sinclair said Wednesday that two 15-year-old boys and one 17-year-old boy were charged last week with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs. They were released to the custody of their parents.

Police began investigating after three students got sick this month after eating pot-laced cookies on the same day the school was holding a daylong event featuring speakers addressing the school district's guiding values of "Community, Academics, Passion and Ethics."

Sinclair told the Portland Press Herald that eight students were summonsed for possession of marijuana.
