Student suspended for opposing drug use

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Two students at Waynesburg Central High School have been suspended for 10 days because of the way they depicted an activity they were trying to discourage.
John DiBuono and his classmate made a public service announcement for a TV workshop. They used crushed Smarties candies. In the video, his friend pretended to snort cocaine. It was supposed to be a message against using drugs.
In a statement, the Jerome Bartley, superintendent of the Central Greene School District, said: “Although the individuals involved were not using illicit drugs, the district’s policy prohibits look-a-like drugs, substances, liquids or devices.”

DiBuono is also being required to attend drug counseling.
