Colorado middle school students bring a pound of pot to school to sell.  Chief of Police of the City of Florence expressed frustration that no one seems to be following state or local regulations when it comes to marijuana, and there is no enforcement.  This is creating an increasingly dangerous environment and circumstances for local citizens and for children and teenagers.


The Daily Record, Southern Colorado police: Students brought marijuana to sell at middle school, October 7, 2014

Middle school students brought a pound of marijuana to sell at a school last week, said Florence Police Department Chief Mike DeLaurentis at Monday’s Florence City Council meeting.

He said the children got the marijuana from someone’s back yard.
