    Second grader brings pot on school trip

    A second grader who brought more than a dozen bags of marijuana to school will not face criminal charges - but his uncle will. The 8-year-old student at the Dunbar School found his uncle's stash, and brought it on a school field trip Friday to show friends, police said.

    A teacher found the boy stuffing bags of pot into his pockets during the trip to Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History.

    "We immediately contacted the state Department of Children and Families because we were more concerned about the youngster," said Michael Giannotti, a spokesman for the school system. "After an investigation, we decided not to suspend the youngster because we don't feel there was any malice on his part."

    I'm proud of the school officials for using common sense rather than going by zero tolerance rules. LOL...imagine the teacher's surprise when she saw what he had!
