LUENEBERG - Ten schoolteachers in the northern German town of Lueneburg were hospitalised after eating a chocolate cake laced with cannabis, police said on Thursday.

The incident was believed to have been a student prank. The cake had been left in the school staffroom with a note saying "Thank you for everything - enjoy your meal".

Suspicions were not aroused because the school has a tradition of cake-baking by students and their parents for the 65 teaching staff, the proceeds of which are donated to charity.

Peter Homburg, head of the secondary high school, said the incident Wednesday was "relatively dramatic".

Teachers complained of dizziness and loss of sensory perception, and one phoned in from the railway station saying he needed help.

All teachers were later released from hospital, although some remained at home Thursday to recover. Police said they were investigating unknown persons on an assault charge.
