BoxOfBees: Technically it was drugs. Same kind the teachers and administrators are taking, most likely. Elevated heart rate and blood pressure? Yes, a combination of caffeine and stress will certainly do that to you.


And when their bodies become acclimated to the caffeine? They'll seek more powerful stimulants to feed their addiction. And then maybe downers to control their "high".

Energy mints, my friends, are a gateway drug. The first step down the slippery slope. From there, it is a short distance to Four Loko, and then the deadly siren song of marihuana.

I applaud the school administration for their bravery in ensuring the safety of the students, and the moral underpinnings of American society.

I_Am_Weasel: High school is all about a strict adherence to the rules, no one out of line. This is to encourage a proper environment for education to occur. This school, in particular, must maintain a certain Pekin order.

/not sure how it's suppose to be pronounced.


It's now spelled Beijing order

If these so called administrators were any dumber, they would need to be watered twice per week.

Good to see schools are taking mints seriously, and ending deadly the scourge of fresh breath.

In middle school (1993ish) I had a report on the civil war. I had to make a visual aide. I made a cartridge charge out of tissue paper, twine, actual buckshot, and convinced my grandfather I should use pepper instead of the real gunpowder we pulled out of the shell.

Now I probably would have been expelled for using a real projectile.

Grandma also wasn't happy when Granddaddy had me fire the unused primer inside the house without warning her.

I always rattled with various tictacs and altoids during school. All the kids would hit me up, on hindsight it seemed like I could have made different career choices. But damn, some kids really need to brush their teeth, but at least a mint would cover it up a bit. (unless it was some sort of superfunk and the mint just made the kid smell like Wint'o'green fish carcass.)

Thank goodness they didn't have Pixy Stix. Long straws and a strange powdery substance? They'd be in the slammer for sure.

FTFA:

Jason McMichael said his 17-year-old son has never been in trouble before, but the boy was suspended from school Thursday and Friday and barred from attending the weekend's homecoming festivities after school personnel found the four students eating chewable energy mint tablets in school Wednesday afternoon. The mints contain caffeine and other ingredients typically found in standard energy drinks. Coca Cola.

Students should have received thumbs up for not imbibing high fructose corn syrup along with the methylated xanthine.

When the Street Sharks disbanded and he could no longer find satisfaction in fighting crime, he decided to become a judge.

Do_wacka_Do: School teachers and Administrators are Saints, they do such difficult work and get paid nothing. They took these jobs purely through the goodness in their hearts. We need to stop picking on them.


You couldn't possibly be more wrong. This one incident proves that all teachers are overpaid leeches on society and schools are a huge waste of money. We need to cut education funding and put those little bastards to work making shoes in a factory somewhere.
