Bringing marijuana edibles onto the campus of a school or college campus will have severe consequences. Students will face suspension or expulsion if caught. Schools consider bringing marijuana edibles to school a serious offense. These disciplinary offenses will leave a mark on a student’s permanent record. This will require students to disclose the possession of drugs to other schools and even licensing boards in the future. This can impact acceptance into college and even the issuance of a professional license.
I have had several cases where a student’s friend brought the contraband to school. Another student was dared or tricked into taking a bite. Those students who were dared or tricked can still face the most severe penalties, even if they were not the ones to bring the edibles on campus.
I give the same advice as above to those who were tricked or dared to eat the edibles. Do not talk to school staff. Do not text or talk to friends. You should also immediately contact an education lawyer who is experienced in defending school expulsion cases. The quicker an attorney is involved, the better the chance of avoiding the most severe penalties like expulsion and the greater your chance at protecting your educational future.
