    Marijuana found on 6-year-old boy

    No charges filed, but student faces discipline from JPS

    A teacher might be used to finding rocks or frogs in little boys' pockets, but a kindergartner with marijuana in his pocket shocked everybody.

    The 6-year-old from Raines Elementary School was on a field trip at the Jackson zoo on Friday when he showed the marijuana to several other students, who told the teacher, Jackson Police Department spokesman Robert Graham said.

    "It was not like he had a big bag of weed in his pocket ... He had some seeds and little stems ... not even enough to roll a joint," said Graham.
    No charges were filed against the child, whose name was not released. Police took him back to school and notified his parents. Graham said the boy "knew what he had."

    "He was, naturally, scared. He knew he was in trouble," Graham said.

    The child told police he had found the marijuana on the porch of his home.

    There would be no way to prove whose it was, Graham said.

    School Principal Melissa McCray did not return a phone call seeking comment.

    Jackson Public Schools' policy is to expel any student caught with drugs, although the superintendent can modify the discipline.

    "Unless there are some extenuating circumstances, the zero tolerance (policy) is usually adhered to ... This breaks my heart, to think that any child ... would ever have access to illegal drugs," said Peggy Crowell, assistant superintendent for student services and alternative education.

    If a kindergartner was expelled, he would go to one of seven positive action centers at elementary schools throughout the district.

    Besides the normal school work, the centers can provide help from social workers and mental health specialists, and the family is involved in the process.

    Katrina and Mark Jones of Jackson, who were at the zoo with a different group of school children, said they saw officials surround the boy in the parking lot.

    "It's kind of hard to believe, a kindergartner. Oh, my God ... this is utterly ridiculous," Katrina Jones said.

    May Richard, a school crossing guard and parent of a child at Raines Elementary, was equally surprised.

    "I can't believe it. My goodness, what is this world coming to?" Richard asked.

    Ronald Drabman, professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, said "this is a phenomenon that I think you will see from time to time ... He was probably just trying to be a show off, but, of course, he impressed the wrong people and he got in trouble."

    Sheba Moses, director of guest services at the zoo, said the incident had nothing to do with the zoo.

    That's so fucked up. That went way too far. What an asshole teacher too. If I was a teacher I would have just taken it from him and told him that it's illegal and if he was an adult he'd be arrested. You know? Just scare him a little.

    Pretty much sums it up.. its not like he was gonna smoke it, he found something he thought was cool and he showed it off.. hes a little kid, what kind of a prick would turn a 6 year old into the cops?

    (although i do find it a little odd that a 6 year old would know what marijuana looks like esp. if it was just seeds and stems.)

    when i was six years old, my parents had rented a house near the beach for the weekend and had some friends over. i was taking a shit and exploring my surroundings when i noticed a tin lunchbox on the floor. i picked it up and looked inside and found my fathers weed. i didnt know what it was, at first i thought it was herbs for cooking and shit, but in the tin there was also a pipe and a joint, so i figured it was just green pipe tobacco. then a few years later when i was 12 i found it again, and i had just done DARE so i knew what it was, so i stole some and got high for the very first time. fun was had.

    this is seriously so poorely conceived and written it's almost nausiating. they quoted the most irrelivent people. a crossing guard? a completely unrelated stranger? the fucking zoo PR person, to insure that no one was under the impression that the zoo somehow gave the kid the weed?

    ugh. what is the world coming to indeed. sensationalize shit a little fucking more, you faggots.
