Elementary school pot bust: 3rd-graders caught smoking weed in school bathroom

Bummer, man.

Yesterday, The Huffington Post reported that three (very) young hellions were caught smoking weed in the boy's bathroom at their San Francisco elementary school. The boys, two 8-year-olds and a 9 year-old, were spotted lighting up by another student who promptly told a teacher. The school administration then called the police.

“[I’m] shocked. To be in third grade and have their own pipe,” said parent Linda Rodriguez to the local news. “I think they should be expelled, but I also think they should follow it further to where they found [the marijuana].”

Public response varied. One Huffington Post commenter wrote,“Wow, we need to lock these little heathens away for a long time behind bars in a juvenile detention center where the state can ensure that these kids grow into hardened criminals who live a life perpetual incarceration. Wouldn't want them to have a future or anything since they're criminals and all.”

It isn't the first case of nine year olds thinking the school bathroom was a great place to get high. According to KOAT, two New Mexico boys were busted by the principal while toking in their school's bathroom. The police report states that when asked how often he smoked, one boy replied that “he hit hard a lot.”
