Choo-choo trainspotting: 7-year-old brings pot to Houston elementary

Choo-choo trainspotting: 7-year-old brings pot to Houston elementary

To quote Clueless's Cher Horowitz's opinion on drugs at school, it is one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, but it is quite another to be fried all day.

Apparently no one gave this bit of stoner wisdom to a certain first-grader at Foerster Elementary, who was caught with what a Houston Police Department spokesman said was .2 grams of marijuana at school. 

While we wanted to believe that this was a simple case of the 7-year-old thinking it was oregano or grabbing the wrong baggie for lunch, the drugs were reportedly found after another kid told a teacher, which makes it seem like the lil' pothead was bragging about his stash. Which just makes me unbelievably sad. And a little angry, though not as angry as this kid makes me.

The child has been suspended for three days and remains in the custody of his parents, but CPS and HPD are involved.
