Our youths do far riskier things than drugs. Sports is an excellent
example. No death certificate on Earth lists cannabis as the cause of
death, but that can't be said for skateboards. The message sniffer
dogs on leashes held by police officers in schools sends is fear
authority. That ideology has no place in schools. If authority is so
unwise it must resort to terror to instill obedience, it has no place
educating youth.

When police are allowed into schools with loaded weapons when nothing
has happened to disturb the peace, we have stepped that much closer to
fascism. This is madness.
