Police Chief David Smith said the school's principal seized more than three grams of the drug from the two boys. He said investigators do not believe any children smoked the marijuana.

"Right now, we believe this was an isolated incident," Smith said.

Smith said police do not know where the children obtained the marijuana and the two boys have changed their stories numerous times during questioning.

The police chief said the boys face a school advisory council to determine punishments and a date in family court.
