Posted on 03/05/2014 9:34:46 AM PST by Morgana

SONORA (CBS SF) — Three third-grade students at a Sonora elementary school were busted for smoking pot in the school’s bathroom last week.

Two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators. Those officials then alerted local police.

The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th.

Sonora Elementary School Principal Chris Boyles would not speak with CBS SF regarding the case, but Superintendent Leigh Shampain confirmed that the students were caught smoking marijuana in the school’s bathroom. He would not discuss how the students might be disciplined.

Is the issue that the medicine was not administered by the school nurse?

Did the staff mistakenly confuse the healthy marijuana for Camels or Marlboros?

Wise members of the 4H club are going to run a medicinal pot stand (for acne, ADS, etc.) instead of a lemonade stand. It's for the children.

Aren’t the libs happy? They like it when kids smoke pot, have homosexual sex, and get abortions.

But if the kid says “Jesus” or “makes a gun with his fingers” he is expelled.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

When I was growing up in Dallas in the 70’s, I smelled pot in the elementary bathrooms.

Right....as if that was the ‘plan’ all along.

Let’s substitute cigs, alcohol or Rx for pot. Are those any less offensive to your sensibilities that would cause your snide post?

I don’t recall seeing a bust of a cig smoker under the age in QUITE some time...it is not still illegal? Oh, but pot is somehow WORSE than the rest?

Maybe the need for nanny/big-gov’t and gov’t dictates are just fine and dandy with Conservatives when it’s something they agree with...it’s not Fascism when ‘we’ do it, right?

Not their fault, with the geography lessons and what not in schools today they probably thought they were in Colorado.

They like it because drugs make society more passive. Easier to manipulate.

People are happy as long as they have their Doritos and dope.

Where are your priorities? Don’t you realize that this isn’t something serious like smoking tobacco or using your finger like a gun and pointing it at someone! Maybe they will have to sit through two sessions of the sex-ed series on sadomasochism as punishment. Probably get gold stars for “Working well in a group”.

It's good to see youngsters willing to take their medicine without an adult forcing them to take it. How many kids will grow up thinking that weed is good medicine?

But if the kid says “Jesus” or “makes a gun with his fingers” he is expelled.

Or wears an American flag on his t-shirt on Cinco de Mayo.

Wait.

That's not solved by expulsion, but by turning the shirt inside-out.

I love Copperopolis.... nice little town. But not all areas in the mountains are as nice....there are spots that are full of very strange folks (and I don’t mean strange just because they live in the mountains)

Is this a problem?

Yes, but the problem is no worse than third-graders who drink, smoke cigs, and pop pills. Third graders should not be doing any of these things. but sadley some of them do.
