THC free gummies?

An officer was called to Hudson High School on Friday, Sept. 8 at 9:20 a.m. for a student that had taken a Cannabidiol CBD gummy. A staff member said the school was concerned the gummy contained THC, a main compound in cannabis. The student was given the gummy by his mother who ordered it online and was informed it was legal and okay to give to her child. The officer contacted the St. Croix County DA's office and found it was not an illegal substance as long as it did not contain THC. The officer took the student home and spoke with the mother. She showed the officer the bottle of gummies, which said "THC Free." the officer tested two gummies and both showed positive for THC. The mother said she believed the gummies to be safe, or otherwise she wouldn't have given them to her child. The officer again called the DA's office, which said the act was not criminal as the mother and child were unaware of the THC in the product. The office said the tests could be false positives, but that the crime lab could not test them since there were no charges and it was backlogged. The mother said she would contact the company with the results. The officer took the remaining gummies to dispose of them. The school stated the student would not be able to return until next week.

Room at the Inn?

Officers responded to the Royal Inn Motel on Coulee Road around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12 for a suspicious activity complaint.
