LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Four Florida teens have been taken to a hospital after authorities say they drank ecstasy juice.

Polk County sheriff’s officials responded to a Lakeland high school on Thursday after reports that a 14-year-old gave a water bottle filled with juice and dissolved MDMA to another student. Four students were taken to the hospital and treated for exposure to ecstasy. The Orlando Sentinel reports one of the girls was held at the hospital for observation.

Two of the students, both 14-year-old boys, were also arrested on drug charges.
