    The best quote in the whole article:

    "Principals make hundreds of decisions everyday based on our best judgment. And in that time, smelling that marker, I felt like, 'Wow, that's a very serious marker,'" Benisch said.

    Serious marker is serious.

    .
    I was in Moscow a few years back, on a work trip. Was walking down a very busy street near a Metro station, maybe 4 miles north of the Kremlin (Kremlin is the heart of the city; city itself is some 20 million people; huge). Anyway, where I am is called Vokzal Rizhkaya, near the Kosmos Hotel where I watched the putch go down in 1991, and there's thousands of people going every which way.

    Then along this super busy sidewalk comes this kid, about 13 or 14. He's got his face buried in some kind of clear plastic bag as he's fast-pace booking up the street. Meanwhile, he's breathing like he's inhaling the whole universe. I watch him for a few seconds, then he disappeared into the crowd, face still buried inside the bag.

    Sniffing glue.

    Bad stuff, causing brain, kidney, and liver damage. Sad to see it. Very sad.

    Like they say: sniffing the wafting smoke from a maple wood fire place is great; sticking your head into the fire place is not nearly as pleasant.

    Does this screwball Principal know that if he looks out his window he can watch kids in the schoolyard selling Heroin, Meth, Coke and having sex on the monkey bars......:confused:

    AMERICA IS GOING INSANE

    I thought this thread was about a principal suspending a student for sniffing a marker.. hello everyone knows sniffing glue in plastic bags is not a good thing.. just another opportunity to preach to us..

    Duh. Somebody always has to read to you in BIG letters, don't they!!

    Sniffing magic markers for the rush, sniffing glue for the rush.... Of course, you don't care what kids put into their bodies, it would seem.

    You think these two instances are the SAME?:rofl:
    What kind of zero-tolerance fear-cult crap is that?
    You don't see the diference between a wasted Russian teenager sniffing glue bags and an eight year-old sniffing a magic marker?:rofl:
    Too funny!

    It is so funny it is sad, another weak attempt to hijack a thread about the overreaction of a principal by comparing to the situation in Russia... and of course now I am accused of not caring what goes into children's bodies.. never deal with the issue of hand.. just attack.

    You do understand that those are totally different, right? That there's no way to get high from sniffing a Sharpie...right?

    Or does someone need to read to you ?

    Zero tolerance society can only exist where the People are so totally brainwashed into trusting Authority that they no longer question it even when what Authority claims is so outrageously false. It's how cults work (religions, personalities, the police, Homeland Security). You must be completely willing to believe everything on "faith", otherwise we're left with personal freedom and responsibility. Pot = crack but is not the same as Prozak.

    Don't fall down laughing. I can't be responsible if you hurt yourself.

    Guess I'm old-fashioned. I trust the principal was looking out for the best interests of the student and the rest of school. If you think it's a student's civil right to sniff magic markers, well, that ain't me.

    Anyway, without knowing the exact context, this is one of those things that could either way. I tend to side with the more conservative approach. If that makes me bad, I don't want to be "good".

    It was in the article, bozo.

    From the poison control expert--not my own opinion. So take the smarmy bullshit and stick it up your ass.
