Kid Brings Cocaine Into Thomson Elementary, Shares His Stash

Today, a kid briefly turned his elementary school into Studio 54, bringing in a little cocaine. At least enough to share with four other students. DCPS has the details:

"Today, a student Thomson Elementary School brought an undetermined amount of cocaine to school and shared it with others in his class. Four of the students who received the cocaine ingested it, some orally and others inhaled it through the nose. It is unknown at this time how much each student ingested.

The students’ teacher spoke with the student who distributed the cocaine and alerted the main office. The four students were evaluated by the school nurse and transported to the hospital as a precaution. A fifth student, who did not ingest the drug, was also transported as a precaution. All are reportedly OK.

School leadership at Thomson ES notified the parents of the students involved and met a group of parents after school to address their concerns regarding the incident. A letter from school leadership also was sent home explaining what had happened (see attached).

School is not in session Friday as it is a professional development day for teachers. Counselors will be at the school on Monday to discuss the incident with the student body and teachers. The counselors will provide information to educate students about the dangers of drugs and offer advice on drug prevention.

The student who brought the cocaine to school has been charged with Possession Controlled Substance (cocaine). The Office of Attorney General handles juvenile matters and will determine how to proceed with charges given the age of the student."

    Not stupid kid rather, stupid parents and stupid wealthy people who more than likely put this in the kid's hands.

    Had this happened in a Fairfax County Public school, I'd be surprised, but considering it happened in DC, can't say I'm terribly shocked...

    Anyone who reads this story should be shocked!! People are so quick to throw their opinions out there and never realize that the same could happen to them or a loved one..the parents need to be held accountable. What type of country do we live in where a child is charged with a crime when they don't understand the concept of consequences!! We live in such a hateful society that it's much easier to put a child into the criminal system versus getting to the bottom of the problem

    @Ash- you must be a horribly sheltered person this type of thing is happening everywhere and the kids know what they are doing. He knew it was a drug and he knew what he was doing is wrong. And if you don't put him in the criminal system for a crime your showing him that he can get away with it because he's a child, what else will he do he's not punished properly
