Utah typically has a squeaky clean image when it comes to alcohol and drug usage. Sure, no community is immune, but certainly other areas have far greater drug problems. Unfortunately, one Utah high school is making headlines today because of a rash of drug deals made by students to undercover officers.

The important thing to note here is that this type of activity occurs on school campuses across America. No community is immune from drug dealing on campus. But kids are dealing with big bad thugs on the street corners. They are getting ecstasy, mushrooms, or prescriptions from familiar faces. These may be long time classmates going back to kindergarten. Kids typically get high for the first time with someone they trust and know well. Kids are getting pot from buddies with medical marijuana cards. It’s an epidemic.

This latest arrest was reported in the Deseret News. Thirteen students from three high schools in Weber County this morning. It was part of a months-long investigation by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force.

A majority of the arrests, eleven of them were at Bonneville High School. The amount of arrests surprised officers, as they anticipated only a handful of arrests. One person was arrested at Roy High School and another at Three Rivers High School.

All of the drug deals originated at the school. The two parties would then arrange to meet later to complete the deal. Some deals were completed off school property while others were made in the school itself or the parking lot. It’s clear these kids had no fear of dealing drugs right on campus.

This is a reminder that parents need to be more active in their children’s lives. They should be asking questions, following up with where their kids are headed, and home drug testing their kids regularly.
