4th Grader Selling Pot
(From WWMT) - Officials at a Colorado elementary school are investigating after a fourth-grader is accused of selling marijuana to classmates.
Greeley School Safety Director John Gates says the boy sold pot to three other fourth graders on the playground.
The next day one of those kids gave that boy a food item with marijuana in it.
A classmate turned the kids in. Two were suspended, the other two are facing less severe punishment.
Administrators say this could have been prevented.
"Unfortunately, in both instances the students got the marijuana from their grandparents, not with consent, their grandparents didn't know they took it," said Gates. "We wish they would secure it much like they would a firearm, or something that could get in the hands of kids and shouldn't."
The school has asked police not to file charges against the grandparents, but do hope this incident serves as a lesson.
