Children don’t have to go down a dark alley and deal with adult gang members to get their hands on marijuana or numerous other illicit drugs.

But that’s the image that most parents see.

Police officers in Dayton, Ohio have arrested a 14-year-old for bringing marijuana to school and planning to sell it.

The 8th grader attends Meadowdale PreK-8 School, but he spent Halloween at the Juvenile Justice Center.

School administrators called police after they noticed the boy had a big zip top bags with individual bags of marijuana inside.

Officers believe that the teen was trying to sell the drugs on campus, and that the boy had also smoked pot in the restroom.

This is a reminder that kids get their drug supply from other kids.

Kids are also getting pills from the medicine cabinet, and they will either abuse them, or sell them to another teen to abuse.
