Weed gummies are pretty great—unless you're a fifth grader who thought you were eating a handful of Haribo bears. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, a nine-year-old girl stole some of her grandpa's medical marijuana gummies, mistaking them for candy, and passed them around to her classmates. As you'd expect, they all got pretty stoned.

The mishap just made a few of the kids pretty "giggly," according to the Albuquerque Journal, but the girl who brought them in ended up downing five. She wound up in the nurse's office, where the school quickly found out what happened.

On the latest episode of Desus & Mero, the hosts talked about what happened to the kids that fateful day, the school's strange reaction, and why weed candy might not be the worst thing kids are putting in their mouths these days.
