An elementary school student in Washington, D.C. is facing drug charges, for sharing cocaine with classmates. School officials say four, eight, and nine-year-old students, ingested the drugs, while others sniffed it. The students were taken to the hospital, but they’re expected to be okay.
A letter was sent home to parents alerting them of the incident.
The student who brought the cocaine to school has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. It’s still unclear who supplied the drugs to the child.
