What’s good greenies, this story is coming out of Matthews, North Carolina. To be honest, its a bit depressing. Now the D.A.R.E. program was founded in 1983 by LAPD Chief of Police, Daryl Gates. Sure, its helped keep drugs out of schools, sorta. But its turning these children into snitches! This is the case, an eleven year old elementary student took the course, and soon after brought a couple joints from his parents stash to school, and turned them in. Horrible thing to do, eh? Full story here.
Stason Tyrrell of the Matthews Police Department talked to WBTV and had this to say:
”Even if its happening in their own home with their own parents, they understand that’s a dangerous situation becauser of what we’re teaching them. That’s what they’re told to do, to make us aware.”
The father, age 40, and mother, age 38, where further questioned and arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both misdemeanors.
Well, my best wishes go out the family, mostly the mother and father. Your kid is an idiot. Hopefully someday the madness will end and we can all puff our herbs without this sort of thing happening, until then, keep your heads up.
