Police say a child in Pennsylvania handed out more than 60 small bags of heroin to his classmates before his teacher discovered them.
Wilkinsburg police say the eight-year-old brought the bags to Turner Elementary School on Tuesday.
Police said some of the bags were found empty in a rubbish bin, but there was no evidence the children had ingested the drugs.
Police say the bags were stamped with the words "trust me".
School officials sent a letter home to parents about the incident.
Police are investigating how the boy got the drugs.
Wilkinsburg is about five miles east of Pittsburgh.
