"[I'm] shocked. To be in third grade and have their own pipe." -- Sonora Elementary parent Linda Rodriguezas quoted by KTXL-TV.
March 6, 2014: The headline in today's Los Angeles Times reads "Third-graders caught smoking pot at school face disciplinary action."
The incident occurred February 27 in at Sonora Elementary School (Tuolomne County), "Home of the Bobcats," where Leigh Shampain, at left, joint superintendent of Sonora and Summerville elementary schools, told The Union Democrat officials do not discuss specifics of disciplinary cases and that this is the first time anything like this has come across his desk since he began the job.
The children, who were smoking pot [with a pipe] in the bathroom, were 8 and 9 years old. They were busted by another student, who told school officials, "who then reported it to police, according to KPIX-TV."
...Probation officials in Tuolumne County are also now investigating how [the kids] got their hands on the marijuana.
