FRIENDSVILLE, TN (WBIR) - A 24-year-old man and two teenage girls were hospitalized Sunday after eating candy which contained high levels of THC, an active compound of marijuana. 

According to the Blount County Sheriff's Office, a 15-year-old boy brought two packages of "Dank Grasshopper" Orange Gummies to the Hickory Valley Baptist Church in Friendsville. 

The boy who brought the gummies has a mental disability, according to investigators. 

They're trying to figure out where he initially got the gummies.  The packaging was labeled "THC 900Mg - 2 Gummies/450 Mg per Gummy."

The boy then gave one package to another 15-year-old boy and a 24-year-old man. The 15-year-old opened the package, but didn't eat any. 

The 24-year-old ate some of the gummies then gave the rest to a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl. 

Investigators said all three had negative reactions to the substance including seizures, hallucinations and vomiting. 

As of Monday afternoon, the 15-year-old girl was in the ICU and the other girl is also recovering at Children's Hospital in Knoxville.  

The 24-year-old victim was treated and released from the hospital.

    Good Wednesday.  Today is special because it marks the first day we see our average temperature start to recede.  The average high for yesterday's date was 90.  The average high for today's date is 89. As we progress through today we will notice our humidity levels dropping and skies clearing.  Temperatures will also be about 5 degrees lower than yesterday (93 was the high in Chattanooga Tuesday).  The bottom line: awesome weather is settling in.
