Students Suspended For Fake Drug Use In PSA


kdka.com

WAYNESBURG (KDKA) ― Two students at Waynesburg Central High School have been suspended for 10 days because of the way they depicted an activity they were trying to discourage.

John DiBuono and his classmate made a public service announcement for a TV workshop. They used crushed Smarties candies. In the video, his friend pretended to snort coc aine. It was supposed to be a message against using drugs.

Well, that's just sad. What was the saying again?

Indeed!

This is freaking ridiculous.

How in the hell is it a BAD thing to try to discourage the use of illegal drugs? If anything, they should have been punished for not including the LEGAL dope in their PSA.

The world is going freaking mad!

when i was in school about 10 years ago, some kids were bringing in pixie stix in plastic baggies, and rubbing it on their teeth. They were all suspended for the same thing - using it in a "suspicious manner."

Rubbing it on their teeth? Really?

We just snorted it. You'd blow blue snot for a week.


There's too much not reported in this story. Wasn't the teacher final editor for the videos? Did she see this clip and immediately escalate it? Shouldn't she have been more closely involved with the project to know that what they intended was a violation of school policy?

In 7th grade (uhm... 199...4?) we had to do some campaign lobby thing for some election thing for some class. My group was the tobacco company. We had the most money. We really got into it and even made a bunch of fake cigarettes complete with glowing cherry. The teacher didn't care too much. But as a couple of us continued to carry our 'cigarettes' behind our ears for the rest of the day, another teacher took issue and quietly took them away. If this had happened today how many days would we have been suspended?

If rational reasoning had taken place not us nor the super intendant would have ever known about these kids and their candy coke.
