My initial reactions to this are twofold, First, this is stupid, and they had to of known that they couldn't of kept selling it for a long period. One of the purchasers would probably figure out that it wasn't crack in the little baggie.Betty Crocker would be appalled.
Ordinary baking flour was being passed off as "cocaine," police say, by a trio of Lakota Freshman School students.
The three 15-year-old boys were arrested yesterday and were taken to the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of trafficking in counterfeit controlled substances.
The three also had emptied powder from energy supplement capsules and were calling that "hashish," police Lt. David Tivin said this morning.
Hashish is a derivative of the cannabis plant, which produces marijuana, and can be added to tobacco. It has relaxing and perception-altering effects.
The investigation began Thursday when one of the three students climbed aboard a school bus reeking of freshly smoked marijana, Tivin said, adding, "The smell of marijuana permeated throughout the bus."
The bogus drugs came to light as a result of the investigation that followed the teen's arrest.
Along with the fake drugs, "there was a small amount of marijuana that was real," Tivin said.
Jon Weidlich, spokesman for Lakota Schools, said a handful students approached school officials to tell them about the drugs.
While not commenting on this particular case, he did say, "In this sort of situation, students are suspended from school with a recommendation for expulsion."
Lakota Fresham School Principal Keith Kline also has sent an e-mail to parents.
"This week, several of our students witnessed a classmate who passed what appears to be illegal drugs to a second student," he wrote. "Our students immediately reported this information to school administrators and, as a result, the situation was quickly resolved. The offending students were promptly removed from school and we were able to continue with our school day. As a precaution, we temporary locked down our building so that we could partner with the West Chester Police canine unit to search other areas of our building."
Second, these kids are probably really lucky that they got caught doing it early. From what I understand trying to run a scam like this, especially on the street, often has some very bad consequences for the seller. Maybe this experience will knock some sense into them, and they can become productive members of society (yeah, wishful thinking).
