Middle School Student Snorting Smarties Shaped Methamphetamine
However strong our wish is to shield our youth from substance abuse and addiction, we’ve been unable to stop children from taking drugs. In the Hollywood of the nation, California, a middle school teacher noticed two students exhibiting strange behavior: sniffing pink tablets.
After inhaling deeply from the strange tablet, the eighth grader passed it along to his prepubescent peer, according to Fox. Upon questioning the students claimed the tablet was candy, but tests came back positive for MDMA and Methamphetamines.
Principal Bill Murray, astonished of the discovery, is quoted by Fox,
“It’s the first time in my career I’ve ever had this, and I’ve been in the business for 46 years.”
Here’s what the City of Ione Police Department has to say:
We’re glad to see the Police Department mounting the initiative to educate parents and the community about local addictive substances. But according to Alexandra, she’s seen her middle school classmates snort sugar.
If we’re lucky, she’ll give us insight into her misguided classmates soon!
What were the strangest things your middle school peers did?
