SONORA, Calif. -- Three third-grade students at a Sonora Elementary School were busted for smoking pot in the school's bathroom last week.

CBS San Francisco reports that two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators. Those officials then alerted local police.

The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th.

Sonora Elementary School Principal Chris Boyles would not speak with the station regarding the case, but Superintendent Leigh Shampain confirmed that the students were caught smoking marijuana in the school's bathroom. He would not discuss how the students might be disciplined.

The case was forwarded to the Tuolumne County Probation Department.
