Leave the damn kid alone. Another waste of tax dollars on an investigation of a "pot" dealer. Go after the bigger scumbags selling heroin to minors. And just because you get busted in a school zone, doesn't mean he's trying to peddle to a 6th grader. Wrong place, wrong time. People make mistakes, don't burn them to the ground for it. And "DAME BRIGID", provide one solid case of an overdose by the use of pot. I bet you will be searching the internet for a long time to prove that idiotic statement.

Mike Jobs, you are literally talking out of your ass and making yourself look like a fucking idiot. Might I add that you're doing a phenomenal job at it too you fucking loser. I'm done with this because I have better ways to spend my time.

@Mike jobs, I suggest you read the newspaper or look online. On May 23rd, a Pittsburg 4th grader lit up a joint in the school bathroom. That followed a February 27th incident of three 3rd graders(8 year olds and a 9 year old) who were caught smoking pot in a San Francisco elementary school bathroom. Obviously, kids that young actually are buying pot... Sadly; there are even some 5th graders who were trained by their dealer parents to be drug mules at an early age, & are now selling it themselves...This is what we get when courts are leaving children in the homes of dealers/addicts because the criminals' rights are more important than an innocent child's. Sickening.
