Kids suspended for "Happy Crack" at school.

PENN HILLS, Pa. -- Parents and at least one school board member said they believe an elementary school in Pennsylvania overreacted when it suspended 14 students earlier this month for mixing sugar and Kool-Aid crystals and calling it "Happy Crack."



Officials in the Penn Hills School District said the kids were suspended for imitating drug activity.



The students put the mixture in plastic bags and labeled it "Happy Crack."

Children have been mixing kool aid powder and sugar since I was a kid.


How is this imitating drug use? Have adults lost all sense of reasoning?

We used to pound up Smarties in a plastic bag and called it cocaine...it was just for fun, the same way there used to be candy cigarettes. I never did real cocaine as a result, it was just role play. Kids do it, and will continue to do it.
