Police in Connecticut are investigating after they say a 4-year-old special needs student brought nine bags of marijuana to school and offered it to his friends during snack time.

School Superintendent Mark D. Benigni told CBS New York that the investigation centered around the boy's well-being.

"Our concern is for the 4-year-old student, who had no knowledge of what he was bringing to school," Benigni said.

Meriden police planned to seek an arrest warrant for the boy's mother on charges of risk of injury to a child, possession of a controlled substance and intent to sell, according to the Meriden Record-Journal.

A teacher at Hanover Elementary School called police Tuesday after seeing the student produce the drugs, which appeared to be wrapped for sale, NBC Connecticut reported.
