AIKEN - Prosecutors say two 10-year-old boys who tried to trade marijuana to their South Carolina elementary school classmates for bubble gum or desserts won't face drug charges.

Burnettown authorities said they weren't sure the children knew that what they were doing was wrong.

Authorities say 3 grams of marijuana were found on two Jefferson Elementary School fourth-graders after their classmates told teachers. Police say they don't know where the students found the drugs or why they brought them to school.

Police say they do not think the boys or any of the children at the school smoked the drug or were in any serious danger.
