The four students, two boys and two girls from Atascadero’s junior high school, the high school, and the fine arts academy, have been released to their parents. Charges include marijuana possession and selling over-the-counter drugs as pain killers.

Police issued a citation to a 13-year-old girl for selling the supplement melatonin to fellow students under the guise the pills were pain killers.

On March 3, school officials informed police they had detained a group of teens for marijuana and drug possession. Police are continuing to investigate the issue.
