SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A fifth grader who brought marijuana to his school in an effort to stop his dad from smoking could be expelled from school.
According to Diana Klink with the City of Suffolk, an officer responded to Driver Elementary, 4270 Driver Lane, for a student in possession of marijuana.
Klink said the student told officers he found marijuana in his dad's truck and took it to school with him to show his teacher he wanted his dad to stop using it.
Bethanne Bradshaw with Suffolk Public Schools said the student was recommended for expulsion per policy and will have an expulsion hearing within 10 days.
