Several Middle School Kids Were Hospitalized After Eating Ghost Peppers

Some sneaky middle school students brought a bag of ghost peppers to school and dared all their friends to eat one. Sounds harmless enough, right?

Five students ended up in the hospital. The incident took place in the lunchroom and kids flocked to the milk, chugging carton after carton to ease the heat.

So they’re going to chalk this up to a learning experience. Get more here.
