    Schools need to stop trying to be parents.

    First it's just a bag of skittles, next it's cigarettes, beer pot, coke, crack, heroin. It's time to put a stop to skittles, they're the true gateway drug!

    I will be disappointed if Skittles sales don't go up for the next couple days.

    The school has backed off of its punishment. The kid's suspension was expunged and he was allowed to retain his position in the student government.

    I like how they played it out like a drug deal. The kid was being secretive about it, and threw the candy.


    "Yo, man...yo, yo, yo..check this out. You want some Skittles? I got the good **** right here...just a little bit, man."

    "Nah, I don't do Skittles."

    "Come on, man....you can taste the rainbow with these little sons of *****es. Come on...the first one is on me. The purple ones...will get you HIGHER than a mother****er, swear to God."

    "Well...ok."

    Man, I'm glad I went to high school in the 90s. We had vending machines with sodas, candy, gum, and cookies. That was pretty dope.

    Now they're ridding the schools of the evil sodas, candies, cookies, etc, and replacing them with "healthy" substitutes.

    It must really suck to be a kid right now...

    Parents need to stop sending their kids to government schools to be indoctrinated.

    That what happens when you don't have self control about eating junk food and spend all day in front of the TV either watching it or playing video games instead of getting outside.

    My friends and I ate plenty of junk food as kids, but we also worked it off playing baseball, basketball, soccer, football, riding bikes, having snowball fights, swimming, doing tons of psychical activity without even really realizing it. In my opinion, junk food is fine (in moderation) as long as you're active, kids these days aren't active though.

    Agreed. I used to down a bag of Lay's Sour Cream and Onion chips and a 6-12 pack of Coke daily. But I also played sports (for school and just around the neighborhood with my friends). I burned those calories. Now you got these fatass kids (I have some in my family) who stuff their face all day while playing Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 online.

    When I was a kid, I was always outside during daylight. I would play my video games and stuff, but that was after the sun had gone down and I was back at home.

    I don't like fatass kids. I have a few them as friends, but it gets on my nerves when we're doing activities and after 10 minutes they want to just lay around.

    Why isn't the dealer being punished? It seems like they're always coming down on the users.

    The article says the dealer was also punished.

    We had video games in the 1980's too, but nowadays it's gotten downright obsessive. The online thing only made it worse, to be honest. Now fat kids from all over the globe are slowly gaining weight together.

    Times were much simpler when your only goals in a video game were to a) get the high score, b) beat the game faster than you did before, and c) beat the game and lose as few men as possible.

    Now you got Porky and the Fatman trying to gun down aliens halfway around the world from each other. XBox 360 and PS3 should come with obesity and lethargy monitors. You get too fat, sit in the same place for over 6 hours, your ass gets zapped, and the game shuts off till you shave some of that bacon off your back.
