PENSACOLA, Fla., April 25 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said an 8-year-old girl who brought marijuana to school identified it to her teacher as the substance her mother "puts in blunts."

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office said the 8-year-old student at Lincoln Park Elementary School in Pensacola gave a small amount of marijuana to her teacher Tuesday afternoon, the Pensacola News Journal reported Monday.

"This is some of my mom's weed. It's what my mother puts in blunts," the girl was quoted as telling the teacher.

Deputy Chris Welborn, a sheriff's spokesman, said the incident is being investigated by deputies and the Department of Children and Families.

"Right now, I can't speculate as to what charges might be brought against the mother," Welborn said.
