The Franklin County Grand Jury has returned a twelve-count indictment against Briana Marie Hudson, 19, and a seven-count indictment against George Hanson Dailey, III, 32, for making and selling candy laced with drugs to minors.
The counts in the indictments include: Possession of Hashish, Illegal Manufacture of Drugs, Aggravated Possession of Drugs, Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs and Corrupting Another With Drugs.
Earlier this year, two Gahanna Lincoln High School students went to the school nurse and complained of accelerated heart rates and general nausea after consuming some hard candy. The students were transported to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for treatment.
According to the prosecutor’s office, it was later determined that the laced candy had been purchased from Hudson and Dailey by two students, who then either sold or distributed it to others.
Gahanna Police executed a search warrant at Hudson’s and Dailey’s residence where they found batches of the THC-laced candy, as well as other drugs and supplies, that can be used in manufacturing laced candy.
