Crickets chirping from the peanut gallery. I'll say it: savages and animals. Pushing dope on our communities.

Nail her to the fullest extent of the law. For a teacher to use or deal drugs is simply worse than the average person. If you don't want to be held to a higher standard for your behavior then don't go into education. Piece of garbage...

Legalise Marijuana.
Tax it, and use the money for drug education and public awareness campaigns.
put the drug dealers out of business.

They won't rip her a new one on here because she does not fit the profile. Poor misunderstood girl(snark)

Here's a math related question:How many years in the can will you get for this stupid decision?

Here's an idea - let's presume her innocent until proven guilty - I realize that's quite a reach for you all, but this is still America... feel free to leave and head to Iran or China if you want to convict first and ask questions later... You are the problem with society as a whole and the filling of our prisons with wrongly convicted people - when (as jurors) you go in with the presumption of guilt rather than innocence as is required by Federal and State law....

It's a VERY rough section of Prince William County. No crime is surprising there.
