Teachers Busted With Drugs

Recommended Posts

Here in Houston we have had fifteen teachers and staff busted with drugs in their cars during school hours within the last two weeks. The teachers association has declared that drug testing all the teachers would be an invasion of their rights. Is it me or should we not have the right to test anyone teaching our children? Anyone else having this problem at their schools?

Sad part is they announced that the drug dogs would be checking out all of the cars in the parking lots and the idiots are still hauling the drugs to school. If I am out of line on this just let me know. It sucks for the kids that want an honest education and for the parents to have to send their kids to any school like that.

Thanks for letting me rant.

Hmmm,  I thought random drug tests were pretty standard in most businesses.  I know here where I work at anytime the can say GMAN go get tested.

Yes its bad. Have any of them shown/given the drugs to the students?

How has their performance been otherwise? People dont get all up in arms over teachers that constantly speed in their car, which at a certain point becomes a misdemeanor, just like having pot.

Im just saying, just because they do drugs, doesnt make them poor teachers. The decision to bring them on campus is pretty stupid though.

One of my english teachers, that I had three times during high school, was most definitely a pot head. I know this for a fact. He was by far my favorite teacher and probably the reason that I do well with english and grammar. He never made overt comments about drugs or inferred that he did them, or that they were acceptable.  I knew that he was a pot head from outside of school.

I dont do any kind of drugs anymore, but I think its a bit silly when people get all up in arms, over pot at least.

Yes, they should be fired for having it on campus. But pot smoking teachers shouldnt be condemned with a broad stroke. Everyone has their vices.

Drugs in school is getting more and more plentifully, isn't it?

On Friday, they caught a 6th grader smoking weed in the bathroom, this kid was only 12!

My brother that goes to a different school says that if you stay in the bath rooms long enough you'll get high! That's just an example of how it is around here!

I wouldn't put it past the kids to plant some in a teachers car they didn't like...I can think of a few professors I'd like to do that to right now...

I wouldn't put it past some of these kids these days. I doubt that anyone could get high by being in the restrooms too long at my school, but you can smell it.

Most kids in my school do it in the parking lot before or after school.

Our restrooms aren't monitored enough, I walked in a few weeks ago and there was 3 kids in the stalls passin cigarettes under the stalls. But I smell "other stuff" every now and then.

Sorry, I think anyone using, selling running, etc. drugs of any kind needs to be punished.  It is not a victimless crime. Pot might seem innocent enough but there are hundreds/thousands of murders, including children, and beheadings in the drug wars in Mexico just for the right to transport this stuff into the states.  To say nothing of the other innocent people who are robbed of money and possessions because of illegal drug use.  Sorry, bust 'em!

Enjoy the fuel in your vehicle and your wifes diamonds then.

Much more horror comes from oil and diamonds then the Mexico situation, IMO.

Why won't they test the teachers? That's not an invasion of privacy. Plenty of employers test their employees, what makes the school district any different?

In Virginia, they can test students who participate in extra curriculers, why shouldn't the teachers be held to the same standards?

I have been clean for over 16 years, WHY, Because I stopped using! That's not genius work, everyone using out there is not an addict, but anyone using >>Drugs ( even the so called enhancers) lessen your ability to do the right job at the best capabilities.

 I guess someone could for a while teach stoned, but there is no getting away from the truth sooner or later it gets in the way.

 Victimless; What if a kid gets into a teacher's stash, let's say cocaine or heroine, suffers an Over Dose/ Lets say a teacher lights up in the parking lot, blows the red light and smashes into a school bus.All this has happened and will continue to happen.

Idiots for bringing drugs on a school campus. But if it doesn't effect what they do in the classroom then what's the big deal. What happens outside of school is their own business. If they want to smoke a joint on a Saturday fine, as long as they are in class doing their job on Monday I don't see the big deal. I know of 7 or 8 high school teachers I had that smoked pot. One of which had a perscription for it for his chronic back pain and had early stages of glaucoma. He was one of the best and brightest teachers I ever had.

I figure there was more than just pot and they found some heaver stuff in their cars. But as for a teacher smoking pot, I could careless. The number of people who smoke pot in RI and Mass is crazy. Mass just passed laws to lower the punishments of people caught with pot and RI hands out scripts for it. It is by no means acceptable, but socially it is very common and is looked upon by a lot of people as not a big deal.

Four arrested came out of the main administration building. Most were for pot and illegal prescription drugs that they had no script for. If any was coke, I have not heard of it being mentioned.

That's the scariest stuff around in my book. Right up there with heroin and such. You want to talk about addictive, nothing like prescription pain killers.

This country is hypocritical when it comes to drugs. I'm not for or against drugs, that's a different discussion. What I can't figure out is how we as a society are supposed to be anti drug, but the pharmceutical and liquor industries are allowed to bombard us with endless advertising. You can't have it both ways. So, in other words, its not ok to smoke marijuana, but by all means go and get a prescription ?! :-?

You forgot about the beverage industry and that other wonderful addictive drug known as caffeine.

I have a strong belief that you should have fun/relax on your time off when you have nothing important to do. But when it comes to work, you need to be focused in order to do your best. Also like Muddy said, if your not paying 100% attention in everything you do someone could get hurt no matter how ordinary your job is.
