Pot problems in Colorado schools increasing

DENVER — Authorities in Colorado are trying to determine ways to fight an increase in pot problems in public schools.

Mesa County resource officer Mike Dillon says he is seeing more problems and younger kids bringing marijuana to schools after Colorado voters legalized recreational marijuana.

According to the Denver Post, there are no official statistics on problems statewide, but school officials are reporting a sharp rise in drug-related disciplinary actions.

We really shouldn’t be surprised.  Just as kids underage drink, now kids will underage dope. Just as you occasionally see drunk kids on campus, now you’ll occasionally see stoned kids on campus.  Kids follow what adults do.
