Fourth Graders Busted for Selling Pot in Colorado


By Jennifer Burke

The push for recreational marijuana in Colorado has not come without its share of controversies. While advocates of marijuana promote its innocence and celebrate publicly with huge, marijuana focused parties, the glorification of pot has not come without a price.

With the use of marijuana now ‘normalized’ in Colorado with a open displays including ‘marijuana festivals’ where tens of thousands of pot smokers from around the country gather together to light up in public, children, some believe, are being sent the wrong message.

Gina Carbone, one of the founders of Smart Colorado, a group formed to educate people about the impact of the legalization of marijuana on children, believes that kids and adults alike do not know enough about the dangers of marijuana.

Her concerns were sadly validated this week after four 10 year old fourth grade students, three boys and one girl, were busted for dealing marijuana on their elementary school campus. FOX News reports that school officials have stated the students would be disciplined sternly, but would not face suspension of expulsion. They apparently came into possession of the marijuana they were dealing courtesy of grandparents who had purchased the drug legally.

In a letter sent home Tuesday, Monfort Principal Jennifer Sheldon told parents that because it’s easier for adults to get marijuana, children potentially have greater access. Denver TV station KDVR posted the letter on its website:

“We urge all parents, grandparents and anyone who cares for children to treat marijuana as you would prescription drugs, alcohol or even firearms. This drug is potentially lethal to children, and should always be kept under lock and key, away from young people.”
