MOBILE COUNTY, AL (WALA) -

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office released new details about last week's incident that sent six students from Alma Bryant High School to the hospital.

Investigators announced Monday that gummy bears eaten by the students were not laced with meth, but actually contained THC. The sheriff's office said initial field tests conducted last week came back positive for meth. Mobile County Sheriffs Office narcotics officer Lt. Rassie Smith confirmed to FOX10 News that further analysis and better testing found no signs of meth in the candy. 

"I think either way it's bad, I mean if you want to say that meth is a more addictive, dangerous drug, I guess you could say that, but either way it's bad because you have a kid taking something and they don't know what's in it," said Smith. 

Five girls and one boy were taken to local hospitals after Thursday's incident were all released that same day. All are expected to be fine.

Three students were arrested and taken to the Strickland Youth Center. They're accused of passing out the gummy bears at school. All three are charged with unlawful distribution, which is a felony.
