Fourth Grader Brings And Shares Cocaine With Elementary School Students

A fourth grader in Washington D.C. has been charged with drug possession, for allegedly bringing cocaine to school and sharing it with some other students.

Officials with DC Public Schools say four elementary school students either sniffed or swallowed cocaine brought to school by a classmate Thursday.

The students involved at Thomson elementary school were taken to a hospital to be checked out, but are fine aside from having sore throats. A fifth student who recently had surgery was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.

A letter sent home to parents Thursday from the school's principal said child protective services and the police are investigating how the student got the cocaine.

On Monday, counselors will be at the school to discuss the dangers of drugs and drug awareness with the students.

    At least he brought enough for everyone. The fact that he's sharing shows good parenting!

    Funny thing is I bet for the rest of the week he was probably the most popular kid in school. Everyone wanted to hang to out with him to see if had any more of that "super sherbet"

    Any kid's in sports should be tested and this is the drug of choice for inlisted in your system for 2 to 3 days clean test. It's a real shame ,but we need more of a crack down then too look the other way. if parents are using so will there kids .

    This has nothing to do with the school system...how would a teacher possibly know that this fourth grader has cocaine, who expects that? This is obviously a problem within the home and it needs to be addressed. Convicting a 10 year old for drug possesion is only going to make him fall victim to the downfalls of America's justice system.

    Anyone else remember "sour power"? Kool-Aid mixed with a little sugar that tasted so good when we were young? Wow! I'm so sad that my kids won't get to experience that now b/c I have to warn my 7 year old that he can't taste ANYTHING that ANYONE gives him. What in the world is this world coming to?

    Holy Cow! No wonder this is another feeble attempt by the administrators to get end of year test scores up! Bet they pay more attention hopped up on the juice.

    OIC. I apologize for not reading the entire article. It says WASHINGTON, DC. That is not a surprise to me. I mean if you are going to reelect a mayor to a second term who has been caught on video with it....why punish the 4th grader? He's just doing what he's been taught.
