Two New Mexico Third Graders Caught Smoking Pot at School

The principal of Berrendo Elementary School is punishing two third-graders she caught lighting up marijuana cigarettes in the school’s bathroom.  The average age of third-graders is 8 or 9 years old.

Local deputies in Roswell, New Mexico where the school is located asked one of the boys if he has ever done anything like this before, his response was shocking – ‘he hit it hard a lot’. 

To keep the matter from escalating the principal is handling the punishment of the students internally and will not press criminal charges against the youth.
