3rd Grader Gives Her Teacher Pot

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in Florida said an 8-year-old girl who brought marijuana to school identified it to her teacher as the substance her mother `puts in blunts`."

The Escambia County Sheriff`s Office said the 8-year-old student at Lincoln Park Elementary School in Pensacola gave a small amount of marijuana to her teacher Tuesday afternoon, the Pensacola News Journal reported Monday.


`This is some of my mom`s weed. It`s what my mother puts in blunts,` the girl was quoted as telling the teacher.


This third grader may fail reading comprehension, but she`s bound to get an "A" in Bluntology.

I think it`s sweet that the little girl gave her teacher a small amount of marijuana. If I were a teacher I`d rather get a blunt, than an apple from one of my students.

I don`t begrudge the girl`s mom for smoking pot, but she shouldn`t leave it where her daughter can get a hold of it.

This curious incident is being investigated by deputies and the Department of Children and Families.
