Nope. Who said it was?
Now, powdered sugar in a baggie looks like a drug, especially after joking that it was cocaine. That is against written school policy.
So, if it becomes against school policy for people to breathe, you would probably advocate that people stop doing that?
"The school handbook states that students can be suspended or expelled for carrying a look-alike drug."
It doesn't say "look-alike food made to look like a drug." What those idiot sub-humans are doing to that 12-year-old is more harmful than actually using cocain would have been. They are not the least bit interested in the welfare of children, and certainly are not interested in educating them. We're living in a world of control and power freaks who are destroying our children. In this country they are much more dangerous then Islam.
But how is it that possession of sugar, or any of the various other foods that look like dope, becomes a felony?
A look-like drug is a drug.
A drug look-alike is a non-drug that looks like a drug.
The policy as quoted said no look-alike drugs.
Which explains perfectly why society simply MUST charge this 12 year old boy with a FELONY and place him on probation until he's 18.
Good grief. Death of common sense indeed.
Aptly stated, though I think it could have been handled a little differently.
