(Scroll down for video) Several children and adults were rushed to a hospital after eating marijuana cookies at church, according to police in Indiana.

Ellettsville police said that they have arrested 74-year-old Brian N. Jones, after being accused of passing around the marijuana cookies at the St. John the Apostle Church.

Jones has been charged with criminal recklessness and possession of hash oil.

According to the criminal complaint, the Ellettsville Police Department responded to numerous complaints from attendees of St. John’s Catholic Church after morning Mass, ranging from nausea, increased blood pressure, anxiety, lethargy and paranoia.

The patrons had each claimed to have been given a cookie by a fellow church goer after the service.

A cookie that a patron claimed was given to them after the Mass was sent to the Indiana State Police Laboratory for analysis.

The Indiana State Police Laboratory found that the cookie tested positive for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a controlled substance.

A total of six people were rushed to the hospital for treatment.

The ages of the six victims range from 12 to 70.
