Surprisingly, this didn't happen in Colorado.

Fourth-grader taken to hospital after smoking marijuana in school bathroom

A fourth-grade student at Pittsburgh Roosevelt was transported to the hospital Thursday after the student got high in a school bathroom, the acting principal told parents in a letter.

Students alerted adults in the school that the student was smoking marijuana, acting principal Anthony Pipkin wrote. The student brought the cigarette and lighter from home, the principal said.

No other students were affected, and the district confiscated the items and reported the incident to Childline, Mr. Pipkin said.


The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

The Tribune Review reports the child is a girl, adding:

A police spokeswoman could not immediately say whether the girl's parents or guardians might face charges in connection with the incident.

The girl was treated and released from the hospital and school district officials say she'll face disciplinary action.
I don't know, isn't it kind of a slam dunk about charging the parents?
