“Vaping” nicotine and THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, has become a major problem in schools.

A Fauquier High School student faces two criminal charges after allegedly threatening and coercing two other students into using a vape pen, resulting in medical emergencies for both, according to the sheriff’s office.

“The two students were transported by ambulance to Fauquier Hospital shortly after noon on Tuesday, Oct. 22, after using a Juul vape pen containing THC oil,” Sgt. James Hartman said Friday.
The school resource officer, administrators and a sheriff’s detective immediately began an investigation, according to Sgt. Hartman.  The detective Thursday “obtained juvenile petitions, charging the student with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance,” he added. 
The charged student remains at a regional juvenile detention facility. 
“The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and school administration continue to look into the incident and will continue to work together to ensure a safe environment for students and faculty,” Sgt. Hartman said.
