New low, 3rd Graders busted for smoking pot at school

In what could be described as a new low in the current cultural morass this nation seems to be in, it is being reported by MML three children have been found using marijuana at school.

These three children are in third grade, they were at a local elementary school and smoking weed in the bathroom. Two are 8 years old, and a 9 year-old was the eldest.

A student from the school walked in on the three pot smokers, and then left to inform a school administration staff. Identities are obviously being withheld, due to the age of the children. While the children were released to their parents, the information from the investigation by the Sonora Police Dept. was also sent to the Tuolumne County Probation Department.

Certain segments of the community will be stunned by this revelation, while some will shrug it off as a 'personal choice'. Without prejudging the children, it would seem inappropriate for 8 and 9 year-old students to be getting high so early in the morning at school. One question which may wind up being asked will be: Where did the drugs come from, and who taught the kids the specifics of how to consume the drugs.
