The teachers didn't have a choice in the matter.

They have to report it, or they're in trouble too.

The cops on the other hand? Actually they didn't either... It's the law. Stupid. Draconian. But the law. Until Kansas changes the law, or it becomes a federal law, stories like this are going to happen.

The interrogation was uncalled for. I'm curious, was there a lawyer or advocate present for this interrogation??? If not, a big ol' can of worms just got opened up.

Addiction is addiction don't matter if it's alcohol weed or heroin. It's in the childs best interest not to be around parents that are doing these things. Marijuana is still illegal in most states and on a federal level.

Most dopeheads are in serious denial about their drug use. I think the federal government needs to step in and put an end to this marijuana movement. I see nothing positive coming from it. Legalization will not have any positive effects for society as a whole.

I respectfully submit that when they want them to, all flags look red to cops.

To further your analogy a bit, bulls are color blind. All flags are red to them. They charge because of the movement of the flag, not its color.

Why do you see nothing coming from it? Do you have bad vision? Marijuana is supposed to help with that.

Let me start of by saying all drugs under the constitution should be legalized.....That being said this is one terrible mom. The kid is 11 let him worry about child issues like who is coming over to play after school.



The progressive mindset is a setup for failure on all levels. This mom is using her son to further her cause....Pathetic. And before you go and say this kid did it on his own.....YA RIGHT.....GROW UP. Sorry I did not mean to yell but this is a kid and any good parent would say stop worrying about adult issues and go outside and play.

After being stoned from the time I woke up until the time I went to sleep for 4 years. I've been clean and sober for 17 years. Nothing good comes from addiction or legalization of it.

Well that explains it! You stopped smoking and now your vision went bad again. No wonder you are so woefully misinformed about marijuana to the point of trolling.

That's a good example to set for your child. "To hell with critically thinking about important issues, son. Just go run outside and play awhile. Don't worry your little head with complicated stuff. Other people will take care of it for you."

Dumb all the way around, WORST TEACHER OF THE CENTURY, instead of OK'ing the topic (and then using it against Him and His Family) She should have suggested another topic, unless of course she was looking for that big bust. Was the child read his rights? Did He understand He didn't have to answer any questions? Was He offered a Lawyer?

I wouldn't be surprised if none of Her students trusted Her again....ever!

what good has keeping it illegal done? Because wasting billions on a epically failing drug war instead of taxing it and regulating it like you would tobacco and alcohol isn't helping either.. Alcohol.. now thats a crappy substance. That being legal has cost thousands and thousands of lives..but its legal! Makes no sense. reply to: wantsome

It's been 17 years since I quit smoking weed and I'm still paying the price for my addiction. Everyday I wake up with the consequences of my decisions from back then. Have I not been smoking weed at the time I might not have made the choices I made in life. I do blame my poor decisions on smoking weed because it impaired my judgement. One thing I did come away from my addiction is I'm a better person for having known what I know now.

There are many people who cannot handle alcohol responsibly and have ruined their lives through alcohol abuse. Self-control does not come easy. For some it is a lifelong struggle.

Sparing the weak from themselves is not a justification for taking away freedoms.

Wrong. Police cannot interrogate a minor without a parent/guardian being there or giving permission. Therefore they can't search the house based on information they obtained illegally.

Also, I havent seen any evidence yhat yhe kid said his mom had marijuana in the house duringthe presentation. Saying she had used it ir it had helped past or preaent tense doesnt mean she has it. Also we dont even know that he said his mom used it at all during the presentation.

Standard scarred user story. "I can't handle it and it ruined my life, therefore no one should be able to use it!"

Wrong or right, that is what they did.

I'm just wondering where the common sense was.

What kind of imbecile sends their 11 year old to school to promote smoking weed? I bet you the kid is already getting high off his parents stash, and if not how long will it be before he is? I am sure being stoned will help him get through school just fine.

Anyone who thinks it is ok for kids to be around, or to smoke weed needs to get off the dope themselves. That is why I am against it being legalized (commercialized), because it will be inside stores and households just like booze is. It's illegal now, yet it's everywhere, so you don't need to empower the State Governments with control over it. Think?

Here in Occupied California you can have up to an ounce for personal use, and that is all that you need. Giving the States more tax revenue to blow on stupid socialist programs, and dumbing down the herds even more is a horrible idea. I don't believe that people should go to prison for Marijuana use though. It also has medical benefits, like treating nausea.

The solution is to find some sort of common ground while using some commonsense at the same time. ~$heopleNation

Kids go to school to learn not spread their parents illegal habits and misconceptions in front of the classroom.


That marijuana has medical benefits is a misconception? Do you think the earth is 6,000 years old too? Evolution is fake? Earth is the center of the universe? I mean, you're saying known facts are 'misconceptions,' so I wonder what else you consider to be a 'misconception.'

Despite the fact that many intelligent and successful people smoke weed...you blame weed...hate to break it to you, pal, but the problem is YOU. All sorts of people smoke it without problems...if you have problems, well, the problem is you...take responsibility for god's sake...no better than people saying 'the devil made me do it'...if weed causes you real problems, well, you got problems...sorry to break it to you...
