4th grader accused of selling pot to classmates



COLORADO
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Officials at a Colorado elementary school are investigating
after a fourth-grader is accused of selling marijuana to classmates.




Greeley School Safety Director John Gates says the boy sold
pot to three other fourth graders on the playground.




The next day one of those kids gave that boy a food item with
marijuana in it.




A classmate turned the kids in. Two were suspended, the other
two are facing less severe punishment.




Administrators say this could have been prevented.



"Unfortunately, in both instances the students got the
marijuana from their grandparents, not with consent, their grandparents didn't
know they took it," said Gates. "We wish they would secure it much
like they would a firearm, or something that could get in the hands of kids and
shouldn't."




The school has asked police not to file charges against the
grandparents, but do hope this incident serves as a lesson.
