Sneaking Items Into School

Nowadays, when you hear about a student sneaking something into a class, it is usually a very serious, dangerous, and scary situation. Back when I was in school, the items typically weren't dangerous. They were just inappropriate for the situation. Many teachers had a designated drawer in their desks to store the confiscated contraband.

Students Bringing "Adult" Treats To School

Every once in a while, you'll see a story about a student bringing some adult "party favors" like booze or weed. It's a nightmare scenario for their parents.


Legal recreational marijuana makes the situation a little bit more tricky. There are cannabis-infused treats that look exactly like normal ones. Thinking it's a tasty snack, the kids bring them to school to share with the other students.
