Two juveniles allegedly try to hide marijuana at school

A 12-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl were referred to the Juvenile Justice Center and released to their parents Jan. 25 on charges of possession of marijuana after a student said he saw the girl hand the boy a bag of marijuana and saw the boy hide the marijuana in a sink at the school, according to a police report.

When officers spoke to the girl, she said she found the bag in the alley between the football field and South Montezuma, brought it onto school grounds and gave it to the boy, according to the police report.

The boy told the officer that the girl asked him to hide the bag for her so he hid it in the sink, according to the police report.

Both students said they did not use the marijuana, according to the police report.

Marijuana is very addictive as is alcohol. Stop being clueless and get the real facts. Having treated patients who required prescription marijuana, they required more and more to get their "fix". And, yes, I also was raised in the 1960's and have seen many of my friends leave this earth too young.

To Those Defending These Kids: this is not typical behavior of children as you quote, trying out marijuana at such an early age. At 18 years of age, yes, you are responsible for your own actions, but before that, it's the parents responsibility. Seems you are too defensive in your judgements. Patting them on the head and a smile will not teach them anything.

I was born in 1942 and while growing up alcohol was the drug of choice, I had never heard of marijuana until 1967 other than being taken to the auditorium with my third grade classmates to be shown "Reefer Madness". What a joke.

We kids would from time to time get into our parents liquor stash to see what it felt like, All I can say is that alcohol is a toxic poison that to this day is pushed down our throats by advertisers making it look like god's give to the human mammal.

Better the kids get Marijuana than booze, it's not addictive, there are no harmful side effects, makes food taste great and many get in a huff that the kids have marijuana. The way to cure that would be for parents to become drinkers and keep bottles around the house. Kids will always be kids,

I smoked weed in high school every day to deal with depression and the anger I felt toward my reality in a small hick town. They didn't have all the pharmaceuticals for kids back in those days. My whole life seemed like a felony but I never got caught and I still did great in school and sports. Even though they were cheap and available, I didn't get want anything to do with harder chemical drugs. After I graduated and moved away, I quit easily and haven't missed it since.

We have another article in the paper today about expanding the jail and the county's challenges with financing the incarceration industry. Maybe it would be good to do a cost/benefit analysis and re-evaluate some of these drug laws.

Take that 19 million dollars and spend it on the kids.

Having raised two kids, young adults now, there were hiccups along the way. As hard as I was, I was also compassionate and understood that this too shall pass.

I would disagree with you Tom Neely, it is people like you that are the problem. You want extreme punishment, throw the book at them. In this instance, all I would want is the result that these kids will not make the same mistake again. How we arrive at that, a felony, a misdemeanor or a strong talking to, is what we should be after. Punishment should fit the crime but above all, change the behavior and make them learn from the mistake. That is the difference with kids and why they are kids.

Plenty of 13 year olds have sampled pot over the last several decades. Get your head out of the sand. But in this town it makes the newspaper. She probably found it outside the old Coyote Joe's smoking patio lol.

"Released to their Parents"?
Change the laws! Teachers explain how this country treats everyone equally. Try to explain this to your students after the pledge. They will laugh in your hypocritical faces.
The system is a sick joke.

Speaking the Spanish does not make you brown. Just like SPeaking the English does not make you white. Spanish is a languange, not a race fool. Spanish speakers are all shades. I speak Spanish I am white. If you have a problem perhaps you should take it up with your foolish government that has stabbed you in the back. LEave color out of it.
Spanish is a language from Spain. Spain is in Europe.

Article comment by: Drug Children?

I am not so quick to judge, especially with the scant evidence provided. Parents are what mold the child. I have made many mistakes most of which were when I was a juvenile. Declared a juvenile delinquent then, speeding tickets are my aberrant behavior now, though I have not been pulled over in at least five years I learned my lesson and took it to heart.

Kids, for you it should never be too late. A life is such a terrible thing to waste, our life here is special. Kids, learn from it, make the best of it and when you leave try to leave it better than when you came.

Wrong people to release to, go directly to junvenile facility, not the parents. Sad to think at only 12 and 13 years of age, these drug children already have the wrong grip on life.

Hey, listen "SA", there are all kinds of things in this country that being "white" will get you right in the BACK of the line for. Don't make me laugh with this "white priviledge" nonsense. All kinds of job listings these days giving preference to those who "habla Espanol". Colleges and other entities are actively seeking those who "habla Espanol" to fill their rolls. If they are ILLEGAL and "habla Espanol", well, then they're treated like foreign dignitaries and given the royal treatment. Take your babbling liberal/white-guilt b.s. somewhere else.

Oh, but you're right about one thing: "The system is a sick joke."

They must have been white and/ or have parents with the "right" last name in this town.
To possess a controlled substance on a school property is a felony. "Released to their Parents"?
We have lost all respect for law to be equally applied to all. Taechers explain this to your students after the pledge.
The system is a sick joke.
