Caffeinated mints

[ #24024 ]
http://www.newsnet5.com/news/4346119/detail.html

"Police won't charge a 13-year-old boy who was suspended for 10 days after he brought caffeine-laced mints to school and his classmates got sick. ... School officials suspended the boy for 10 days because school policy prohibits anything that resembles a drug."

My public schooling taught me that caffeine IS a drug. But some people are more concerned with politics than education and accuracy...

Speaking of accuracy, the math in this article has to be way off. Doing some calculations using the numbers in the article, each of the nine hospitalized students consumed the equivalent of 72% of a cola's worth of caffeine. I wish my caffeine tolerance were that low!
