Overdose at school leads to drug charges

October 2, 2007

Thomasville-- Police say a 16-year old girl gave a 15-year-old girl at least two prescription drugs: a sedative and anti-psychotic medication.  After taking them, the teen was lethargic and couldn't stay awake and had to be taken to the hospital.  

The school resource office, Thomas County Sheriff's Deputy Steve Jones says, "Unfortunately it happened at school. The first of the year we mad a big campaign, to make the teachers and students aware of prescription medicine abuse and over the counter abuse and that we're not going to tolerate it on any of our campuses."

Both students are being punished by the school and will face criminal charges too.
